The study of cognition has experienced rapid growth in the last decade. This topic is fundamental both to the science of psychology and to its applications in real-world problems. Yet there has traditionally been a huge gap between basic research findings in this area and practice in the field. Experimental Cognitive Psychology and Its Applications aims to bridge this gap by bringing together a group of distinguished experimental psychologists who show how their findings can be applied in daily life. Chapters cover key areas of cognitive psychological research including learning, memory, information processing, discourse, and knowledge representation. The contributors show how basic research in these areas has applications in the areas of mathematical problem solving, task requirements during training, cross-cultural investigations of intelligence, the investigation of recall, and the improvement in educational methods. This book will appeal to experimental psychologists; practitioners involved in training, education, and testing; and students and researchers interested in the core issues of human cognition.

This third edition of the now-classic Methodological Issues and Strategies in Clinical Research is, like its predecessors, intended to assist students and professionals alike in increasing their mastery of the range of methodological approaches available with which to examine clinical issues and phenomena. Editor Alan E. Kazdin's goal is to foster a greater understanding of the implications of decisions about methodology and design in the context of contemporary research practices. The book's divisions mirror the logical and (often) the temporal order of the research process, focusing in turn on each step traversed during the course of an investigation. With 19 new articles and significantly revised and expanded introductory material, the third edition features scholarly contributions that explicate core concepts, survey contemporary issues in research, and elaborate on ethical responsibilities in relation both to research participants and to science itself. A key concept reiterated throughout is that methodology, far from being a neutral tool for acquiring knowledge, is a powerful contributor to and determinant of the knowledge that one obtains.

Principles of Experimental Psychopathology celebrates the contributions of Brendan A. Maher to the development and emergence of experimental psychopathology as a subdiscipline of psychological science. Several current research programs are discussed, and contributors provide rich examples of how the methods of experimental psychology and allied disciplines have been applied to the study of schizophrenia and other psychopathological conditions through a strong understanding of normative processes, genetics, and neuroscience. Maher's influence is evident throughout the volume, as contributors explore schizophrenia and other disorders from alternative methodological viewpoints. This book will be an invaluable resource for advanced scholars and graduate students alike who are committed to psychological science as a laboratory-based discipline that has real-world implications.
