This COGLAB READER includes 32 articles, each of which corresponds to a demonstration or set of demonstrations in the CogLab Cognitive Psycholgy Laboratory. Available online or on CD-ROM, CogLab provides an invaluable laboratory component for cognitive psychology classes. This virtual laboratory gives the students a sense of how experiments are conducted and how individual and group data look. The reader complements that goal in providing a historical and theoretical context for the experiments. Each reading is accompanied by an introduction and questions for discussion that draw both on the reading and on the associated CogLab demonstration.
