Seeing and reading this sentence may seem like a no brainer--but your perception is just a tiny part of what is happening in your brain and body right now (both are much busier than you might think). SENSATION AND PERCEPTION has helped many readers understand the ties between how we sense the world and how the body interprets these senses. A key strength of this book has always been the ability to illustrate concepts through examples and visuals. Dr. Goldstein walks you through an intriguing journey of the senses, combining clear writing, his extensive classroom experience, and innovative research to create a visual, colorful book.

The human face is unique among social stimuli in conveying such a variety of different characteristics. A person's identity, sex, race, age, emotional state, focus of attention, facial speech patterns, and attractiveness are all detected and interpreted with relative ease from the face. Humans also display a surprising degree of consistency in the extent to which personality traits, such as trustworthiness and likeability, are attributed to faces. In the past thirty years, face perception has become an area of major interest within psychology, with a rapidly expanding research base. Yet until now, there has been no comprehensive reference work bringing together this ever growing body of research. The Oxford Handbook of Face Perception is the most comprehensive and commanding review of the field ever published. It looks at the functional and neural mechanisms underlying the perception, representation, and interpretation of facial characteristics, such as identity, expression, eye gaze, attractiveness, personality, and race. It examines the development of these processes, their neural correlates in both human and non-human primates, congenital and acquired disorders resulting from their breakdown, and the theoretical and computational frameworks for their underlying mechanisms. With chapters by an international team of leading authorities from the brain sciences, the book is a landmark publication on face perception. For anyone looking for the definitive text on this burgeoning field, this is the essential book.

Connecting the study of cognition to everyday life in an unprecedented way, E. Bruce Goldstein's COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: CONNECTING MIND, RESEARCH, AND EVERYDAY EXPERIENCE gives equal treatment to both the landmark studies and the cutting-edge research that define this fascinating field. A wealth of concrete examples and illustrations help students understand the theories of cognition-driving home both the scientific importance of the theories and their relevance to students' daily lives. Goldstein's accessible narrative style blends with an art program that makes difficult concepts understandable. Students gain a true understanding of the “behind the scenes” activity that happens in the mind when humans do such seemingly simple activities as perceive, remember, or think. Goldstein also focuses on the behavioral and physiological approaches to cognition by including physiological materials in every chapter. As is typical of his work, this fourth edition is a major revision that reflects the most current aspects of the field.

Second Takes: Remaking Film, Remaking America presents the history of English language cinema by focusing on cinematic remakes and on how cinema has been replaced by new forms of "media." Remakes, with their innate plurality, offer the most substance for concentrated cultural analysis of how movies reflect and shape American culture. Applying psychoanalysis, media and communication theory, and gender and sexuality studies to the archetypes and myths that recur in American culture reveals how movies are an increasingly dangerous surrogate for the actual. In our post-literate epoch, fantasy becomes the greater truth, violence a meaningful language, and the individual is removed from self by an increasingly constricting visual culture. This book presents close readings of such popular favorites as Disney's The Parent Trap, Hitchcock's Psycho, Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, Lynch's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Welles' The Magnificent Ambersons, Sirk's Imitation of Life, Ulmer's The Black Cat, Powell's Peeping Tom, Cronenberg's Crash, Wellman's The Public Enemy, Boorman's Point Blank, and Ferrara's Bad Lieutenant, while unearthing obscure motion pictures ripe for rediscovery including One More Tomorrow, Strange Illusion, Andy Warhol's Vinyl, Fassbinder's Despair, Forced Entry, Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation and Welles' The Immortal Story.

Written by Janet Proctor of Purdue University, this Lab Manual provides one-page worksheets, easy to tear, for each lab contained in the CD-ROM. Each worksheet has a brief discussion of the lab, which describes both the point of the interaction, and also gives the student any needed instruction to run the interaction. For example, "use your cursor to adjust the size of the red triangle until it appears to be the same size as the blue triangle..." Additionally, there are between one to five Results and Discussion questions that the students can turn in as homework to the teacher to be graded, or simply to insure that they have reviewed the media itself. This valuable resource will help to insure that the student gains maximum learning from working through the media. The Virtual Lab CD-ROM is found on the inside cover of this lab manual.
