A 36-Year Odyssey From Surveys to Neuroscience

This training will focus on research on the “psychology of technology” that Dr. Rosen has completed over the last three-plus decades with his colleagues and students. The presentation will highlight various types of research from case studies through observations, quasi-experimental designs, laboratory experimental designs and neuroscience studies.

Learning Objective

The goal is to provide examples of a variety of research designs and statistical presentation to aid in understanding research design and how each type of design may be used (or misused) in the literature and the popular press.
