Bruce has published papers on a wide variety of topics, including retinal and cortical physiology, visual attention, and the perception of pictures. He is the author of SENSATION AND PERCEPTION, 9th Edition (Cengage, 2014), and the editor of the BLACKWELL HANDBOOK OF PERCEPTION (Blackwell, 2001) and the two-volume SAGE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PERCEPTION (Sage, 2010).Review:
"The 'Across the Senses' section is a great idea. The examples that Goldstein has come up with are quite entertaining, and frankly would be fun to talk about in class."
"This book is much improved from the Fourth Edition. Goldstein has done a good job of explaining difficult material. Rush the text to publication."
"The text . . . is exceptional in its quality, organization, pedagogy, and academic credentials. I really think Goldstein has taken giant steps toward his goal of a 'simpler' more straightforward approach."
"I have found Goldstein's Fourth Edition to be the best book on the market. The Fifth Edition is even better, as it integrates ecological approaches to perception more thoroughly, includes more findings on the application of perceptual information to everyday behavior, and expands and updates the text with exciting new discoveries about the neural bases of sensation and perception."
