Introducing Psychological Research offers clear and engaging summaries of the key research studies that have had an enormous impact on the discipline of psychology. Each summary descibes and evaluates how the study was carried out whilst encouraging the student to consider the wider implications of the research findings.
The studies have been organised into sections covering the major areas of psychology including social, developmental, biological and cognitive, with a short introduction preceding each part.
This third edition has been revised and expanded to include fourteen more studies, along with a new focus on methodology, that offers an illuminating insight into how this discipline continues to advance upon previously established ideas and includes explorations in neuroscience and evolutionary psychology. The book provides lively and lucid summaries of both classic and contemporary studies making this the perfect text for students first studying psychology.
