Book Description

24 Mar 2012 1461421969 978-1461421962 2012
The matrix laboratory interactive computing environment-MATLAB-has brought creativity to research in diverse disciplines, particularly in designing and programming experiments. More commonly used in mathematics and the sciences, it also lends itself to a variety of applications across the field of psychology. For the novice looking to use it in experimental psychology research, though, becoming familiar with MATLAB can be a daunting task. MATLAB for Psychologists expertly guides readers through the component steps, skills, and operations of the software, with plentiful graphics and examples to match the reader's comfort level. Using an extended illustration, this concise volume explains the program's usefulness at any point in an experiment, without the limits imposed by other types of software. And the authors demonstrate the responsiveness of MATLAB to the individual's research needs, whether the task is programming experiments, creating sensory stimuli, running simulations, or calculating statistics for data analysis. Key features of the coverage: Thinking in a matrix way.Handling and plotting data.Guidelines for improved programming, sound, and imaging.Statistical analysis and signal detection theory indexes.The Graphical User Interface.The Psychophysics Toolbox.MATLAB for Psychologists serves a wide audience of advanced undergraduate and graduate level psychology students, professors, and researchers as well as lab technicians involved in programming psychology experiments.

Product Description

Review

From the reviews:

“The authors have produced a tutorial-like handbook that might be suitable for lab use in courses where students may have no previous programming experience. It is organized into ten easy-to-read chapters. … The book is clearly written … . This book includes some interesting examples from psychology research, which might also be useful in courses for nonpsychologists. … In summary, this book is a pragmatic hands-on tutorial on MATLAB that might be useful to scientists … including most psychologists and social scientists.” (Fernando Berzal, ACM Computing Reviews, December, 2012)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I thought 10 Sep 2013
By ASN
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is not very beginner-friendly (unless you are mega smart I guess...). A lot of functions are just listed, but the arguments are not explained at all, so you have to keep referring to additional resources. However, the most irritating this is that there are quite a lot of typos throughout the book, incomplete script comments and actual errors in the script! The latter is certainly not helpful when you're trying to learn.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent tool for researchers. 10 Aug 2012
Format:Hardcover
This is an excellent book on MATLAB for cognitive scientists who work mainly within MATLAB. I've used several books in the past (such as MATLAB for neuroscientists etc) and in my opinion, this is the best one and most relevant for my area of research.

It covers a broad range of topics, including programming stimuli, data collection/processing etc. If it could be improved then it would be nice for future editions to include chapters on research tools such as eye trackers, EEG etc, but despite this it is still an excellent book and one that I refer to often.
