A supplemental text for Introductory Psychology, History of Psychology, Research Methods, or other related psychology courses when an appreciation for the research process is sought.
This one-of-a-kind supplemental text fills the gap between our psychological knowledge and the research that made that kind of knowledge possible. In giving forty of the pivotal studies which have shaped this science the attention they richly deserve, Hock's intent is that readers fully experience the process and excitement of great research and discovery, rather than simply read about various findings.
the 1948 article by Edward C. Tolman entitled “Cognitive Maps in Rats and Men” which reported on how animals, including people, think about and conceive the world around them.
the revolutionary research in the 1960s by Masters and Johnson on the human sexual response cycle.
