Additional Book Details

Sensation and Perception, Fourth Edition introduces students to their own senses. Human sensory and perceptual experience is emphasized, and the neuroscientific underpinnings of that experience introduced. By integrating current findings as the basics are presented, the authors impart to students that these are active areas of research.

The Fourth Edition features an emphasis on Sensation & Perception in Everyday Life; this new box feature discusses a perceptual impairment or real-world application related to the chapter topic. The text provides comprehensive treatment of higher perceptual/cognitive functions (e.g., attention, music, language) as well as expert coverage of sensory systems beyond vision and audition (including, notably, a full chapter on The Vestibular System and Our Sense of Equilibrium and separate chapters on Taste and Olfaction). New material ranges from the latest neuroscience to medical applications to philosophical considerations.

The book strives for a conversational tone that unites the voices of several domain specialists into a unified story of the human senses.
