  1. Translation of Thought to Written Text While Composing

    Translation of cognitive representations into written language is one of the most important processes in writing.

    This volume provides a long-awaited updated overview of the field for students, theorists, and empirical researchers in cognitive psychology, linguistics, and education, and teachers and clinicians who can use the research in their work.

  2. BCoS Cognitive Screen Test

    BCoS (Birmingham Cognitive Screen) is a new test instrument developed to screen patients for cognitive problems following brain damage. It provides a novel 'cognitive profile' across a range of cognitive processes within a one-hour testing session that will indicate whether a patient has a clinical impairment (related to norms) in five primary domains of cognition:

    • Attention and executive function
    • Language
    • Memory
    • Number skills
    • Praxis and action.
  3. Extraordinary Memories for Exceptional Events

    Series: Essays in Cognitive Psychology Series

    Not all memories are created equal. Our memories for some very exceptional events seem to stand out in our minds, and as such they may form the very core of who we are.

    This book summarizes theories and data that provide insight into these extraordinary memories for exceptional events. Topics explored include flashbulb memories, the influence of emotion on memory, the bizarre imagery effect, the humor effect, the serial position effect, and the isolation effect.

  4. Multilevel Modeling of Categorical Outcomes Using IBM SPSS

    Series: Quantitative Methodology Series

    This is the first workbook to introduce the multilevel approach to modeling with categorical outcomes using IBM SPSS Version 20.

    Ideal as a supplement for graduate-level courses and/or professional workshops on multilevel, longitudinal, latent variable modeling, multivariate statistics, and/or advanced quantitative techniques taught in psychology, business, education, health, and sociology, this practical workbook also appeals to researchers in these fields. An excellent follow-up to the authors’ popular texts, Multilevel and Longitudinal Modeling with IBM SPSS and Introduction to Multilevel Modeling Techniques, 2nd Edition, this book can also be used with any multilevel and/or longitudinal book or as a stand-alone text introducing multilevel modeling with categorical outcomes.

  5. Writing

    This book captures the diversity and richness of writing as it relates to different forms of abilities, skills, competencies, and expertise.

    It will be an invaluable resource for researchers interested in language and cognition, and also educators and clinicians.

  6. Memory and Aging

    This volume takes a contemporary look at the impact of aging on short-term and working memory, and on long-term explicit and implicit memory.

    World-renowned researchers present the latest neuroscientific data on the physiological and health perspectives, as well as the social, cultural, and cross-cultural consequences.

  7. Training Cognition: Optimizing Efficiency, Durability, and Generalizability

    The general goal of this book is to describe the current state of research on training using cognitive psychology to build a complete empirical and theoretical picture of the training process. The book focuses on training cognition, as opposed to physical or fitness training. It attempts to show how to optimize training efficiency, durability, and generalizability.

  8. Applied Statistics for the Social and Health Sciences

    Applied Statistics for the Social and Health Sciences provides graduate students in the social and health sciences with the basic skills that they need to estimate, interpret, present, and publish statistical models using contemporary standards. The book targets the social and health science branches such as human development, public health, sociology, psychology, education, and social work in which students bring a wide range of mathematical skills and have a wide range of methodological affinities. For these students, a successful course in statistics will not only offer statistical content but will also help them develop an appreciation for how statistical techniques might answer some of the research questions of interest to them.

  9. Sport and Exercise Psychology

    Written in a lively, accessible style, the book is brimful of vivid contemporary examples and insights from the world’s leading athletes, to provide a compelling bridge between theory and practice for undergraduate and postgraduate students of sport psychology, health psychology, sport science, physical education, kinesiology and leisure management.

    Instructors who adopt the book will be able to access a wealth of online teaching resources.

  10. From Mental Imagery to Spatial Cognition and Language

    Essays in Honour of Michel Denis

    Series: Psychology Press Festschrifts

    The nature of mental images and their relation to language has caused controversy amongst psychologists for years, and the so-called "imagery debate" is still unresolved. Fresh light is now being shed on this topic using recent findings in neuroscience and the development of behavioural studies. Reviewing state-of-the-art research in the field of imagery, visuo-spatial memory, spatial representation and language, with special emphasis on their interactions, the volume shows how, and to what extent, findings from the studies on imagery can positively influence and enrich other psychological areas.
