A Methods Companion

  • Offers unrivalled coverage of an aspect of psychology that is usually neglected in textbooks, enabling students to develop a detailed knowledge and understanding of these important topics
  • Provides a balanced discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of those methods covered, stimulating students to think in a critical way not only about psychological theory, but about the techniques used to study this theory
  • A broad-ranging approach encompasses both ethical issues and quantitative methods, providing the student with a truly balanced treatment of psychological methodology, and the issues that underpin the subject
  • Presents methods in an applied context, so that students see the value of these methods to practising cognitive psychologists
  • The Online Resource Centre includes an extensive range of software and experimental data files to augment material presented in the text, which allow students to explore topics in a hands-on manner
