Описание: This book is intended as a textbook for a first-year PhD course in mathematics for economists and as a reference for graduate students in economics. It provides a self-contained, rigorous treatment of most of the concepts and techniques required to follow the standard first-year theory sequence in micro and macroeconomics. The topics covered include an introduction to analysis in metric spaces, differential calculus, comparative statics, convexity, static optimization, dynamical systems and dynamic optimization. The book includes a large number of applications to standard economic models and over two hundred fully worked-out problems.
A fully updated edition of an important psychology text for nursing and health science students.
This fully updated second edition of Psychology for Health Professionals is written specifically for health science and nursing students in Australia and New Zealand.
Authored by the highly regarded Patricia Barkway, with a diverse range of expert contributors, this Elsevier text interprets psychology for nurses, as well as for students of paramedicine, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, public health, pharmacy, psychology, social work and midwifery.
Psychology for Health Professionals 2e examines essential psychological theories, placing them within a social context. Acknowledging increasing awareness that behaviour is influenced as much by external factors as biological and psychological ones, the book's first half outlines psychological, lifespan and social theories, then applies them to contemporary health issues in later chapters.
A key focus of this leading psychology textbook is examining individual personality and psychological theory within the social context of people's lives. New content includes current, evidence-based research, references and clinical examples relevant to interdisciplinary, contemporary healthcare practice. Issues of cultural safety and awareness have been strengthened throughout; there is a new section on chronic illness and a focus on recovery.
This introductory psychology text does not assume its readers will have prior 'psychology' knowledge, yet it can easily be used well beyond first-year university.
"The material covered in the various chapters] is undoubtedly relevant, up to date, and has some nice features; the emphasis on social inequalities and cultural factors as important considerations for those involved in the delivery of healthcare is particularly good."

This book provides an overview of cutting-edge methods currently being used in cognitive psychology, which are likely to appear with increasing frequency in coming years.
Once built around univariate parametric statistics, cognitive psychology courses now seem deficient without some contact with methods for signal processing, spatial statistics, and machine learning. There are also important changes in analyses of behavioral data (e.g., hierarchical modeling and Bayesian inference) and there is the obvious change wrought by the advancement of functional imaging. This book begins by discussing the evidence of this rapid change, for example the movement between using traditional analyses of variance to multi-level mixed models, in psycholinguistics. It then goes on to discuss the methods for analyses of physiological measurements, and how these methods provide insights into cognitive processing.
New Methods in Cognitive Psychology provides senior undergraduates, graduates and researchers with cutting-edge overviews of new and emerging topics, and the very latest in theory and research for the more established topics.

This volume provides an overview of cutting-edge methods currently being used in cognitive psychology. These theoretical insights and methodological innovations are not as widely represented within the cognitive psychological literature as more traditional methods, but they are likely to appear with increasing frequency in coming years. As such, it is not a typical research methods volume that covers familiar ground, but it is in some ways speculative and also instructive to psychologists unfamiliar with the new methods.
This, however, fits nicely within the concept of the Frontiers in Cognitive Psychology series, which is to provide senior undergraduates, graduates and researchers with cutting-edge overviews of new and emerging topics, or the very latest in theory and research for the more established topics.
The first section deals with statistical methods that are well suited to the analysis of data commonly encountered in various subareas of cognitive psychology. While the analysis of variance and traditional null hypothesis testing remains the lingua franca of statistical methods, recent developments in statistical methods provide us with models that are often better suited to the structure of many datasets. Hierarchical and multilevel modeling allows us to use statistical and process models that accurately reflect the ubiquitous multilevel structure in cognitive psychological data. Longitudinal models and structural equation modeling of individual differences provide us with unique insights into how latent constructs might be related by examining variation within an individual across measurement occasion or variation across individuals. This ability to reveal dependencies between cognitive processes neatly compliment the theoretical insights provided by traditional experimental designs in cognitive psychology. The ability to cumulate evidence within experiments, across experiments, and across publications depends on the ability to combine our current knowledge with the results from new experiments. Bayesian statistical methods provide a structure within which to do this.
The second section addresses the emergence of new dependent variables and analysis for dealing with them. The availability of neuroscience data and its influence on cognitive theory accounts for a major change in the field of cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience over the past 20 years. While even an entire volume would be insufficient to capture the breadth of methods for the analysis of imaging data, there are a number of methods that hold particular promise for the development of process-oriented theories of cognitive processing. The first chapter reviews basic constraints imposed by anatomical structures and the surrogate measurement of brain activity via the hemodynamic response. Subsequent chapters deal with methods that provide specific insights into the relationship between brain structure, behavior, and cognitive processing.

Описание: A comprehensive overview of the mechanisms involved in how cognitive processes determine thought and behavior toward the social world, Cognitive Social Psychology: *examines cognition as a motivated process wherein cognition and motivation are seen as intertwined; * reviews the latest research on stereotyping, prejudice, and the ability to control these phenomena--invaluable information to managers who need to prevent against bias in the workplace; and *provides a current analysis of classic problems/issues in social psychology, such as cognitive dissonance, the fundamental attribution error, social identity, stereotyping, social comparison, heuristic processing, the self-concept, assimilation and contrast effects, and goal pursuit. Intended for psychology and management students, as well as social, cognitive, and industrial/organizational psychologists in both academic and applied settings. This new book is also an ideal text for courses in social cognition due to its cohesive structure.
