This revised edition provides full summaries of the most important psychological research studies and includes an expanded section on methodology. The studies have been selected to highlight the major areas of psychology and studies are grouped under headings of social, developmental, cognitive, and biological psychology.

From the Back Cover:


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.
