Key differences between 9th and 8th editions

  • Period between current and previous publications: 2 years (2012 vs 2010).
  • Module 1 "The History and Scope of Psychology" is concluded with "Improve Your Retention And Your Grades" to help students break out of ineffective old habits and develop a more successful style of learning.
  • The Eighth edition's unit "Nature, Nurture, and Human Diversity" (former modules 8 and 9) has been broken up and its content has been integrated throughout the text.
  • Module 12 "Adulthood" has been shortened by moving most of the Aging and Intelligence coverage to Module 26 "Intelligence and its Assessment".
  • The "Sensation and Perception" unit now covers both topics in a clearer and more efficient, integrated fashion, as opposed to covering sensation modules first, followed by perception. Most of the coverage of the deaf experience has moved to Module 25 "Language and Thought".
  • New Module 20, Biology, Cognition, and Learning explores more fully the biological and cognitive constraints on learning.
  • The "Memory" unit was revised with the help of Janie Wilson (Georgia Southern University, Vice President for Programming of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology).
  • Module 22 "Storage and Retrieval" now includes a separate section on memory in the brain, with new research and more detail on the individual locations in the brain where memories are processed and retained.
  • The Motivation and Emotion modules are now combined into one unit.
  • Stress, Health, and Human Flourishing is now covered in two modules - Module 32 "Stress and Illness" and Module 33 "Health and Happiness", which now includes a discussion of positive psychology, well-being, and personal control.
  • The Social Psychology modules now follow the Personality modules.
  • Module 41 "Other Disorders" now includes the book's coverage of eating disorders, previously in the Motivation modules.
