1-1 Discussion: Research Methods in Cognitive Psychology
address the prompt below.
In the Module One overview and resources, you learned that the field of cognitive psychology examines human thought processes through a variety of research techniques. The field encompasses several areas including neuroscience, memory, attention, and problem solving. Based on what you know about cognitive psychology, compare and contrast two different research methods that are used in cognitive psychology. Next, find an article that uses one of the research methods you have discussed. Summarize the main points of the article and discuss why this particular method was useful.
In your responses to your peers, consider their evaluation of the different research methods, and weigh in as to whether you agree or disagree with their assessment and why. Also, consider the article and experiment they summarized. How might you “translate” the same experiment into a different research method?
