New book- great condition! This book was required for my physiological psychology class and I've done really well in the class so far!! This book is very informative and explains concepts really well.
Had I have know it wouldn't come with the access code needed to get onto the website I would have bought this book used and saved myself about $100. Shame on you Amazon for not sending such vital information with a "NEW" textbook or at least advertising that the access code would not be included. Highly disappointed.
Difficult course, but overall satisfied with the book
I chose this rating because the book is cram packed with information. Each chapter has a huge list of terms. There is so much information included that it is difficult to study from and understand it all for a non-science major, and I am NOT a science person!

This book is not stuctured very well. Recieved the book damaged and I bought it brand new.
Hugh Foley and Margaret Matlin have written a solid undergraduate Sensation and Perception text. It covers the expected material and the 5th edition has been updated with the latest research. A reasonable subset of it, anyway.

An introductory chapter outlines the primary schools of thought in psychology and their approach to sensation and perception. The second chapter on research methods presents psychophysics, signal detection theory and methods of recording brain activity. The following six chapters explore the visual system in depth, dividing the content into chapters introducing the visual system and its basic functions, followed by visual pattern perception, distance and size perception, color and motion. The next three chapters cover the auditory system, its basic functions, and auditory pattern perception. There is single-chapter coverage of the skin senses and the chemical senses (taste and smell), followed by a closing chapter on perceptual development. The greater emphasis of vision and hearing is consistent with both the quantity of available research and their greater importance to human perception.

The book has the customary set of instructional features, including bolded keywords and a glossary. It is well-referenced with current research, including an extensive reference section and a helpful author index. The content is well-written for the undergraduate level. Learning is supported by end-of-chapter summaries and end-of-chapter review questions. The text is peppered with links to an above average supporting web site. The online demonstrations are engaging--students enjoy sharing many of them with family and friends.

The instructor web site is carefully guarded by the publisher who, after much checking of an instructor's university affiliation, will serve up a password. The contents are disappointing, excepting a downloadable .pdf file of test questions. It is uncertain whether the publisher's security admonitions keep all instructors from releasing it to their students.

CAUTION: The publisher is willing to create "custom editions" using subsets of the chapters for different universities. This results in a cheaper paperback text that looks like a study guide for the hardback. This can be confusing to students, who sometimes buy the wrong book.

It's a good textbook. Instructors, consider adopting it; students, have confidence in it--and be sure to get the right edition.
I have a cut-down version of this text for a uni class on human information processing. I really hate this book!!

It is really hard to read, over technical and just drones on with key words.

The companion website is the singularly worst student/instructor companion website I have ever had the displeasure to use.
The book can be dry at times but it is incredibly informative.
