Anderson offers systematic and accessible presentation of the theoretical foundations of higher mental processes, with each important idea made concrete by specific examples and experiments. Focusing on knowledge representation as the central issue of cognition research, the book emphasizes an information processing approach to the field, but offers thorough coverage of the cognitive neuroscience approach as well (extensively updated for this edition).
The Sixth Edition also features a new two-color design and an expanded art program, with new figures highlighting areas of the brain most closely associated with specific cognitive functions. The result is a lucid, integrated view of the current state of a dynamic field, from one of its most accomplished practitioners.
