Welcome to the Companion Site!

Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Sensation and Perception, Second Edition.

The SAGE edge site for Sensation and Perception, Second Edition by Bennett L. Schwartz and John H. Krantz offers a robust online environment you can access anytime, anywhere, and features an impressive array of free tools and resources to keep you on the cutting edge of your learning experience.


The highly accessible Sensation and Perception, Second Edition, presents a current and accurate account of modern sensation and perception from both a cognitive and neurocognitive perspective. To show students the relevance of the material to their everyday lives and future careers, authors Bennett L. Schwartz and John H. Krantz connect concepts to real world applications, such as driving cars, playing sports, and evaluating risk in the military. Interactive Sensation Laboratory Exercises (ISLE) available online provide simulations of experiments as well as neurological processes to allow readers to engage with the phenomena covered in the text and gain a deeper understanding of key concepts.

The Second Edition includes a revamped version of the In Depth feature from the previous edition in new Exploration sections that invite readers to learn more about exciting developments in the field. Additionally, new Ponder Further sections prompt students to practice their critical thinking skills with chapter topics.
