Perception, 5e, by Randolph Blake and Robert Sekuler, helps students appreciate the complexity of perception, while giving them a fresh perspective on their own seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, and tasting. This thoroughly revised Fifth Edition includes updated research on cognitive influences on perception, two additional chapters, and a new, contemporary look.

New Features

  • Exciting new research in the areas of speech and music perception, smell, and taste prompted the authors to devote a whole chapter to speech and music perception (Chapter 12) and two separate chapters to smell (Chapter 14) and taste (Chapter 15).
  • More than 300 new research citations reflect new developments in the field, especially on the role of cognition in perception.
  • An improved, more contemporary two-color design and a larger format with more illustrations make the book easier to read and provides ample note-taking space.
