Sensation and Perception, 1st Edition

Written by acclaimed researcher and teacher Steven Yantis, Sensation and Perception shows students how scientists investigate and understand sensory and perceptual phenomena today. Like no other textbook for the course, it integrates classic and current research—including the latest developments in cognitive neuroscience and brain imaging—into a highly accessible portrait of the field’s defining principles and experiments. Engagingly written, filled with outstanding art (including 3-D images), and supported by dozens of interactive visual demonstrations devised by the author, it is your students’ gateway to the forefront of research in sensation and perception.


‘There are many strengths: pedagogical features such as the vignettes and interspersed review questions. The Applications section at the end of each chapter is a great idea. The book is well-written and probably at just about the right level for my students.’ – Dan Swift, University of Michigan-Dearborn, USA ‘This is a clearly written text that does an excellent job of presenting classic topics in the field of Sensation and Perception in the context of current research methodology and findings. Yantis has a talent for simplifying the most complicated of topics. The real-life examples and simple demonstrations that are provided throughout the chapter should help students understand difficult concepts.’ – Sandra McFadden, Western Illinois University, USA ‘A readable text that incorporates the current research with interesting examples of application.’ – Barbara Blatchley, Agnes Scott College, USA

We ordered this book for a college class after the first one ordered was a mistake by the professor. This one was just right. The class has been a successful one. It was delivered on time and in great condition.
