Can you detect things? Can you tell things apart? The branch of Psychology that deals with these questions is called Psychophysics . Psychophysics offers a wide range of scientific study methods very useful for student research as well as formal work.

What about other basic cognitive processes that play a role in decision making and behavior? These include things like perception and psychomotor responding, allocation of attention, working memory span, and short and long term memory. These capacities also can be assessed using PER.

The experiments in this set allow learning the methods easily and offer opportunities for simple research. There is "on-line," immediate (right on the same screen) creation of data and clear simple functions relating stimulus properties to response properties. For example, if a participant responds "yes that line is longer than the other line” in a psychophysical task, a ball drops into the histogram bin corresponding to that line length to give immediate feedback to the participant. A few dozen trials, graphs, calculations and print-outs can be done in ten minutes and it would be hard to fail to see what went on, what the stimuli were, where the numbers came from and what they mean.

Students can choose independent variables such as gender or age and can have a dependent variable of performance on these tasks.
