Introduction to designing experiments( Visual )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses psychology research questions to explore research methods for the social sciences. Shows what happens when Adam, a psychology student, uses a flawed plan to test his theory that people with less hair will choose a very hairy dog to compensate. Contrasts this with a second test involving better preparation and more rigorous analysis. Illustrates concepts that are central to the scientific method, including null, alternative, and two-tailed hypotheses, field and lab settings, sampling, primacy and recency effects, constant and random errors, and other testing principles

Further approaches to learning( Visual )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program explores alternative approaches and explanations of learning, including latent learning, learning sets, insight learning, ethology, social learning, and neuroscience. The program emphasizes the recent move towards a cognitive theory of learning and examines research in this area. The program includes archival film featuring B.F. Skinner and Dr. Robert Epstein, who demonstrated apparent "insight" learning in pigeons using behaviorist techniques. Skinner, speaking just before his death, claims that reinforcement rather than higher mental processes is at work in learning. The cognitive behaviorists think differently!

12 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Producer) Do we really have to pay attention to control and direct all our behavior? How is it that we focus our attention on one input or stimulus and ignore the rest?
