Fundamentals of Sensory Perception

Avi Chaudhuri

  • Unique and accessible organization. Beginning chapters explore touch and the chemical senses before moving on to auditory systems and vision. This structure allows students to gradually build their knowledge about sensation and perception prior to tackling more complex and challenging concepts.
  • Extensive figures and illustrations. With 368 figures, 24 tables, and 130 photos, Fundamentals of Sensory Perception provides the most brilliant art program currently available. Each figure and illustration has been carefully selected to ensure it best represents crucial subject matter. A stunning full-colour design throughout is guaranteed to engage students.
  • Balanced coverage of classic and contemporary material. The most current research, references, and examples have been infused with classic content to give students the perfect mix of historical perspective and cutting-edge information.
  • Accessible, attention-holding writing style. Careful attention has been paid to ensure the language and tone throughout the text is suitable for introductory perception students. 'Side notes' throughout every chapter offer students additional information and engaging examples, and 'Investigation' boxes provide suggestions for fun, easy-to-conduct experiments.
  • Did we mention it's Canadian? The only Canadian-student-oriented text on the market, Fundamentals of Sensory Perception includes a broad-range of Canadian research and relatable real-life examples
  • And don't forget the supplements. Fundamentals of Sensory Perception has the needs of both instructor and student covered. A wealth of ancillary material accompanies this text, including an instructor's manual, a test bank, a test generator, PowerPoint slides, and a student study guide. The text also features an online lab component loaded with video clips and demonstrations from Canada's leading laboratories - absolutely free!
