New authors bring a winning combination of cutting-edge research and real-world impact

W. W. Norton is excited to announce that award-winning authors Elizabeth Phelps and Elliot Berkman will bring their ideas and energy to Psychological Science 7e. Our authors are committed to encouraging students to learn and evaluate psychology through the lens of methods, replication, and the open science era. Looking beyond the text, Liz and Elliot applied their experience with the introductory psychology course to all aspects of the teaching and learning tools, including InQuizitive’s adaptive assessment, new ZAPS 3.0 interactive labs with instructor support and a hands-on approach to visualizing brain science through a new interactive 3D brain. They are committed to introducing students to a more modern view of the field—one that shows the real-world impact of psychology and showcases the work of diverse researchers throughout.

About the Author

Elizabeth "Liz" Phelps is Pershing Square Professor of Human Neuroscience at Harvard University. Her lab, The Human Neuroscience of Affect, Learning, and Decision-making researches the observation that emotions color our lives, and even subtle, everyday variations in our emotional experience can alter our thoughts and actions. By uncovering the impact of emotion and affect on cognition, she aims to both enhance our understanding of cognition broadly and provide insights into social processes and psychological disorders. Liz has won nearly every research award you can win for her research in emotion, cognition, and social and affective neuroscience (see her linked bio). Most recently she won the prestigious?George Miller Prize in Cognitive Neuroscience.?Liz has been the President for the Association for Psychological Science, the Social and Affective Neuroscience Society, and the Society for Neuroeconomics.?In addition to these prestigious appointments and awards, she has taught introductory psychology every year for the past 15 years using our?Psychological Science?text.?Her students love her authoritative, direct, and engaging teaching style and she brings that experience to the revision of our text and media.

Elliott Berkman is Professor of Psychology at the University of Oregon, our largest Psychological Science adopter. His Social and Affective Neuroscience lab researches the motivational and cognitive factors that contribute to success and failure of real-world goals, as well as the neural systems that support goal pursuit. In addition to studying how goal pursuit works, Elliott’s research also seeks ways to facilitate health behavior change goals such as cigarette smoking cessation and dieting. He’s won numerous awards for early career research and teaching and is active on social media. His highly popular article, The Self-Defeat of Academia makes a strong case for psychologists to better communicate the societal impact of their research. He brings that thoughtfulness and societal impact to his revision of Psychological Science. Elliott teaches courses in introductory psychology, statistics, neuroimaging, and social psychology. His students have called his teaching "amazing, funny, and engaging." His blog,?The Motivated Brain, is located at Psychology Today, and he tweets as?@Psychologician.
