Product description


John Harris has decades of experience on how to get students interested in perception, not the hottest topic for most psychology students. In his book, he draws on this experience to get the reader motivated in understanding the problems to be solved in perception research, the methods used and the often surprising insights gained, using hearing and seeing as main examples. John also makes clear that there is still much more to uncover and that humans are still better at most perceptual tasks than computers are. A fun book to read. (Manfred Fahle)

“The breadth of coverage is greater than most other textbooks of its type. The entertaining summaries and test questions will be enjoyed by undergraduates. The book may be broad, but its coverage is deep, so both graduate students and their supervisors will find it a useful reference for material they do not know they do not know. I shall be recommending this book to my students.” (Arnold Wilkins)
