Sensation and Perception (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Is the human eye like a camera? What makes your ears 'pop' on a plane? Why did women in the Middle Ages put belladonna into their eyes?

This fully updated 2nd edition of Sensation and Perception is an accessible introduction to the field of perception. It covers in detail the perceptual processes related to vision and hearing, taste and smell, touch and pain, as well as the vestibular and proprioceptive systems. From seeing in colour to pathologies of perception, and from recognising faces to research methods, this textbook is essential reading for any student of perception.

New material includes:

* 'Applications' features connect key content to real-life contexts

* Thinking Critically feature pushes students beyond the basics

* End-of-chapter essay questions

* An entirely new chapter on Action & Perception

John Harris is Emeritus Professor of Psychology at the University of Reading, where he has taught about perception for over twenty years. Previously, he worked at the National Physical Laboratory, and later at the University of Bristol, in the Departments of Anatomy and Psychology. He has published more than 70 articles and book chapters on aspects of visual perception and its abnormalities. He has been associated for many years with the international journal Perception, first as an Associate Editor and later as a member of the Editorial Board. Dr Jared Smith is a research fellow in mental health at St George's. His major areas of interest are health science, behavioural medicine, and neuropsychology. Specifically, Dr Smith investigates cognitive, learning, and behavioural processes in people with clinical and/or neurological disorders, and the extent to which these processes impact on daily function and are affected by treatments including psychological-based interventions. More generally, he is interested in research involving clinical and neurological rehabilitation, especially in regard to providing evidence-based healthcare for these populations in the form of effective treatments and rehabilitation methods. Dr Smith's current projects involve investigating: predictors of successful outcome of pain management interventions for people with chronic pain - including the influence of neurocognitive function; the benefits of pain management approaches for people with sickle cell disease; the psychosocial burden of surgically-induced nerve injury; the detection of non-credible complaints in clinical populations; and the feasibility of a navigation approach to care coordination for people with severe mental illness.
