Summary The Handbook of Research Methods in Experimental Psychology presents a comprehensive and contemporary treatment of research methodologies used in experimental psychology. The volume is divided into three sections: Part One places experimental psychology in historical context and provides insights into current activities and future trends, Part Two investigates the changing nature of research methodology, experimental design, and analytic procedures, and Part Three features research in selected content areas. The chapters, written by leading researchers in the field, discuss topics such as cross-cultural research, ethical issues, research with animals, comparative psychology, sensation and perception research methods, physiological psychology, and research methods in human memory, cognition, motivation, and psychophysics.
This handbook coherently illustrates the range of research methodologies used in experimental psychology and is a vital resource for both students and scholars who wish to expand their knowledge.
