MacLin combines a text and case approach to examine methods of experimental psychology. Using published research findings, students read, critique, and analyze over seventy five actual experiments, representing every major area of psychology - from animal studies to child psychology.

This textbook is designed to engage students on a deeper and more relatable level with ethical experimental design and analysis. It provides them with real world information about how science in psychology is conducted and how they can participate.


In easy to read, conversational language, MacLin explores the active processes of reading, learning, thinking, generating ideas, designing experiments (amongst others) in relation to a wide variety of subdisciplines in psychology, like behavior neuroscience, clinical, cognitive, developmental and social psychology. Part One is content orientated and provides an overview of the principles of experimental design. Whilst Part Two contains annotated research articles for students to read and analyze. Classic articles have been retained, but many new ones have been added, featuring contemporary case studies, information on the Open Science movement, and with expanded coverage on ethics in research.

This book is essential reading for students and researchers interested in and studying experimental psychology.
