About the book

Description

Laboratory Experience in Psychology: A First Terms Work focuses on experimental psychology, which demonstrates a pragmatic, empirical approach that is endlessly adaptable to varying circumstances in determining human experience and through which the information governing human behavior is deciphered. The topics discussed in this book include the demonstrations and eyewitness accounts: fidelity of report; serial reproduction and the assessment of changes of meaning; control or exclusion of meaning; getting beneath recognition; and “weight,” a study of physical and perceptual dimensions. The “extent” and “density,” a paradigm of perceptual learning; “length” and the development of a frame of reference; and discussion and findings are also deliberated in this text. This publication is valuable to students and researchers conducting work in the psychological field.
