Research in Action features the work of research psychologists to give students an opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research--not just who is doing it, but also how it is done, and how and where the results are being used. By taking students into the laboratories of both established and up-and-coming researchers, and by showing research results being applied outside of the laboratory, these videos offer insight into both the research process and the many ways in which real people’s lives are affected by research in the fields of psychology and neuroscience.
