  • The Sensation and Perception in Everyday Life boxes discuss the application of basic science knowledge to practical problems in the real world. For example, in Chapter 5, aspects of the color picker in graphics programs can be directly traced to our understanding of how the eye and brain derived the experience of color from different mixtures of wavelengths of light. Online demonstration activities, such as through the use of perception experiments, illusions that illustrate key concepts, and models of cognitive processes, bring concepts and examples to life.
  • Scientists at Work boxes walk students through the scientific process based on real experiments and provides a window into the thought process behind designing experiments that yield scientific results.
  • New Multisensory Integration sections throughout the text highlight how human senses interact and create a more holistic and realistic picture of perception.
