The top-selling Sensation and Perception (with Virtual Lab Manual CD-ROM) is backed by E. Bruce Goldstein's excellent research, clear writing, and illustrated concepts. Students and readers find it easy to understand the inner workings of the mind and the eyes, thanks to beautiful visuals and real-life examples. Already on its 8th edition, Sensation and Perception (with Virtual Lab Manual CD-ROM) ISBN 9780495601494 contains around 500 photographs and illustrations. The book was revised according to the reviews and suggestions of over 2,000 students. It works well with the accompanying virtual lab where media exercises are offered. Some of the topics Goldstein discusses include the introduction to perception, how to approach the study of perception, measuring perception, the perceptual process, and sensory code. The book also covers introduction to vision, which discusses focusing light onto the retina, transforming light into electricity, and lateral inhibition and perception. This book will help students understand concepts such as perceiving objects and scenes, visual attention, taking action, perceiving motion and color, and perceiving depth and size. Sound, the auditory system, and pitch perception, sound localization and the auditory scene, speech stimulus, cutaneous and chemical senses, and perceptual development are also discussed. The signal detection theory is discussed in the appendix. Each chapter has a ‘Test Yourself' portion as well as a ‘Think About It' box for self-assessment. Students who want to see more examples may turn to the media resource or the virtual lab. The online supplement offers mini experiments and helps learners memorize key terms.
