    • ‘Demonstrations’ features offer students illustrative exercises that show them exactly how cognition works.
    • ‘Test Yourself’ questions, which appear in the middle and at the end of each chapter, are designed to get students to recall and review the information they have just read.
    • ‘Think About It’ features at the end of each chapter use questions and doable projects to take students beyond the text material. For example, Chapter 6 instructs students to watch films (e.g., Memento, 50 First Dates, Before I Go to Sleep) that depict memory loss. Students are asked to describe how memory loss is depicted in the films, compare the problems with the cases of memory loss described in the chapter, conduct additional research if necessary, and determine the accuracy of the films’ depictions.
    • Research Boxes look more closely at specific research related to the topic of the chapter.
