'Jamie Ward's The Student's Guide to Cognitive Neuroscience is a fantastic textbook! It is engaging and accessible to students while perfectly balancing comprehensive and rigorous coverage of important topics from cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and cognitive neuropsychology. I highly recommend this book.'
Jocelyn R. Folk, Associate Professor of Psychology, Kent State University, USA
'This book provides a very accessible introduction to cognitive neurosciences. Jamie Ward has a very clear and engaging way of explaining difficult concepts. I really enjoy reading this book and I am sure that many psychology students will do as well.'
Nayeli Gonzalez-Gomez, Lecturer in Psychology, Oxford Brookes University, UK
Praise for the previous edition:
'The Student's Guide to Cognitive Neuroscience is a perfect introduction to the field. I use it in my own teaching and recommend it to colleagues from other disciplines who are curious about cognitive neuroscience. Ward is discerning about where to go into detail and where to present a skillfully summarized gist, and always connects facts and findings to the larger picture of what we know and how we know it. The result is a smart, approachable introduction to the concepts and methods of cognitive neuroscience.'
Martha J. Farah, Director of the Center for Neuroscience and Society, University of Pennsylvania, USA
'In The Student's Guide to Cognitive Neuroscience, Jamie Ward provides a clear, informative, and engaging introduction to this important subject. The third edition builds on the strengths of the previous editions, which include an impressive integration of insights from cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroimaging. The text provides a solid grounding in all of the key topic areas of cognitive neuroscience that includes both classic studies and cutting edge research. I highly recommend this excellent text.'
