Now available in paperback, this textbook introduces the student to human experimental psychology in the laboratory setting. It covers both experimental methodology and content. The methodology chapters give the how and why of psychological experimentation; separate chapters on reaction time and mental chronometry treat these important methods more fully than most texts, while chapters on descriptive and inferential statistics and the writing of research reports will help the student turn experimental findings into a lucid report. Content chapters focus on crucial models and theories, discussing them in terms of landmark experiments. The book therefore teaches both content and methodology of principle areas of experimental psychology - these including the processes relating to the broad function of cognition, as well as social, industrial, and clinical psychology. The text is designed to give the reader a practical sense of how questions are framed in terms of psychological concepts, and addressed in the laboratory experiment.
