Details: Product Description Does not contain an access card. A lot goes on in your head when you're doing something simple like remembering (or forgetting!) to do your next assignment. Bruce Goldstein explains all this activity going on in your mind in COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: CONNECTING MIND, RESEARCH, AND EVERYDAY EXPERIENCE. Concrete examples and illustrations help you understand both the scientific importance of theories and their relevance to you, including research-based suggestions for better ways to study. MindTap brings the experiments to life with interactive demos and CogLab: The Online Cognition Lab. You can participate in experiments as a subject and experience the effects of the demonstrations yourself to learn how the mind works. About the Author E.
