Experiment Library

X5

Classic Experiments are based on published papers in psychology research and are ideally suited for teaching. An accompanying free lab book describes each experiment and discusses results.

The experiments are in the following areas:

   • Perception and Attention

   • Memory

   • Reasoning

These experiments were originally published as SuperLab LT, a book sold through university bookstores. They are now freely available to all SuperLab users.

• Perceptual Representation

• Representation of Meaning
