Cognitive Science combines the interdisciplinary streams of cognitive science into a unified narrative in an all-encompassing introduction to the field. This text presents cognitive science as a discipline in its own right, and teaches students to apply the techniques and theories of the cognitive scientist's 'toolkit' - the vast range of methods and tools that cognitive scientists use to study the mind. Thematically organized, rather than by separate disciplines, Cognitive Science underscores the problems and solutions of cognitive science, rather than those of the subjects that contribute to it - psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, etc. The generous use of examples, illustrations, and applications demonstrates how theory is applied to unlock the mysteries of the human mind. Drawing upon cutting-edge research, the text has been updated and enhanced to incorporate new studies and key experiments since the first edition. A new chapter on consciousness has also been added.

'The most carefully written, thorough, up-to-date, and accessible single-author textbook on the theoretical issues of cognitive science I have read.' John Douard, Rutgers University
'One of the best introductions to cognitive science available.' Gottfried Vosgerau, University of Dusseldorf
'A great textbook, which covers the kind of material that a cognitive scientist should know in the twenty-first century.' Daniel Montoya, Fayetteville State University
'The text is engaging, well crafted for an undergraduate audience, and is sure to inspire a generation of students.' Michael Spivey, University of California, Merced
'It is a challenge to provide a collection of students who have different backgrounds with a meaningful integration of an area that is, itself, not well defined. Bermudez's book comes closer to meeting that goal than any other that I'm familiar with.' Gordon Pitz, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
