A perfect match for the CogLab, Wadsworth's Cognitive Psychology Laboratory, this reader includes 32 articles, each of which corresponds to a demonstration or set of demonstrations in CogLab. Available online or on CD-ROM, CogLab provides an invaluable laboratory component for cognitive psychology classes. This virtual laboratory gives the students a sense of how experiments are conducted and how individual and group data look. The reader complements that goal in providing a historical and theoretical context for the experiments. Each reading is accompanied by an introduction that clarifies some of the fine points of the article and focuses the reader's attention on the important aspects of the article. Following each article, questions for discussion draw both on the reading and on the associated CogLab demonstration. In addition, suggested readings are listed to provide readers a way to find out the most recent thinking and research about the topic.
