Abstract

This review concerns two newly revised texts on sensation and perception that incorporate considerable amounts of new research and feature a number of other improvements. This review concerns two newly revised texts on sensation and perception that incorporate considerable amounts of new research and feature a number of other improvements. Both texts are encyclopedic; their main function is to compile and explain a large body of knowledge. Both texts include summaries and unifying themes. Matlin's text will be more useful for an instructor wanting a somewhat easier, student-oriented text, whereas Goldstein's text will be more useful for an instructor wanting precise technical explanations of basic research.
