Abstract:

"The book aims to encompass a somewhat wider subject matter than has heretofore been included in experimental textbooks. This is necessitated by the rapid expansion of such fields as Learning and Memory, and Work and Fatigue during recent years, which has led to a decided shift of emphasis in experimental courses. On the other hand, no attempt has been made to include all fields of psychology which have yielded large bodies of experimental data, but only those included within the term general, i.e., adult, human, normal psychology. The field of Individual Differences has been arbitrarily excluded. Experiments in Animal and Abnormal Psychology have been introduced very sparingly. The emphasis throughout is on fundamental mechanisms. While the choice of material presented under the various topics is adequate, it is by no means intended to be exhaustive. The most rigid selection had to be made in the case of Sensory Processes, because of the overwhelming mass of data available, and the greater completeness with which this subject has been handled in previous experimental texts. In the case of Learning and Memory and Work and Fatigue a more extensive treatment of recent literature was attempted. It is assumed of course that the instructor will exercise individual judgment in the emphasis he places on particular fields. The standard techniques used in connection with the various fields have been discussed in the text and illustrations of most of the commoner pieces of apparatus are given for the benefit of students in laboratories whose equipment is limited. The bibliography is arranged according to chapters so that a complete list of all works referred to in each chapter appears at the end"--Preface.

"This book is restricted to the field of General Experimental Psychology. The only restriction is that the findings must have a general significance for human behavior. However, there is a body of data collected with respect to normal adult human psychology and this constitutes the traditional field of experimental psychology. The study of the organism at work and of the conditions of mental efficiency now contribute an important body of knowledge to experimental psychology. A section of the book has therefore been devoted to the topic of "Work and Fatigue." The present volume is divided as follows: Part I, Sensory Processes; Part II, Perception; Part III, Learning and Memory; Part IV, Association and Thought; Part V, Work and Fatigue; Part VI, Affective and Emotional Processes"--Introduction.
