"Finally, a definitive MATLAB textbook! The coverage of MATLAB programming is both broad and deep. This is the book that can help a motivated reader develop from a MATLAB beginner to a pro." – Hongjing Lu, University of California Los Angeles, USA
"Even without previous programming experience, students in behavioral sciences will find this book to be an accessible way to learn MATLAB because it is well-organized and has many examples, problems, and figures." – Russell M. Church, Brown University, USA
"This book has become a standard reference for our students in experimental psychology. The additional chapters in this second edition are especially useful for those who want to program experiments in cognitive psychology and psychophysics." – Rolf Ulrich, University of Tuebingen, Germany
"I have no hesitation in recommending the second edition of this excellent text on MATLAB for advanced students in experimental and cognitive psychology which will also serve as useful supplementary material for research methods and computational modeling courses." – Alan M. Wing, University of Birmingham, UK
"The book ... covers exactly the material I’d want to be covered for an undergraduate or postgraduate student. ... The level of writing is spot on for the intended audience. …The structure of the code + output examples is very effective in communicating the role and effect of the covered functions and operations. ... The book serves a …valuable role in guiding MATLAB novices. …I can give [the book] to a new PhD student, post-doc, or RA, and they will quickly get up to speed with using MATLAB with little input required from me."– Simon Farrell, University of Bristol, UK
"A book of this content and profile is sorely needed. …Other books are not so easily accessible to non-programmers. …This book fills a void in that it brings in people to programming who never thought they would be able to program. That is a HUGE accomplishment. …I already recommended the book to several … graduate students and … they started learning and using MATLAB right away! …All changes are positive, and enrich the book immensely. …I welcome the new chapters, especially about GUIs and hardware-software connectivity." – Alen Hajnal, the University of Southern Mississippi, USA
