The first part concentrates on the dominant arguments about the role of literature and the status of the author; the second shifts its focus to the debates about working-class activists and radical women authors, and examines the growth of a Romantic ideology within this context of political and cultural turmoil.

Statistical Methods and Reasoning for the Clinical Sciences

FREEDownload : Statistical Methods and Reasoning for the Clinical Sciences

Eiki Satake, "Statistical Methods and Reasoning for the Clinical Sciences"
English | ISBN: 1597564338 | 2015 | 303 pages | PDF | 10 MB

Statistical Methods and Reasoning for the Clinical Sciences
The growing emphasis on evidence-based practice has increased the importance of using clinical studies for empirical demonstration of the efficacy of clinical interventions. As a result, speech-language pathologists and audiologists must be well-versed in research methods and statistical analysis. In fact, a demonstrated knowledge of statistics (including a stand-alone course in statistics) is a requirement of ASHA certification effective September 1, 2014. is the ideal textbook to meet the need for a solid understanding of statistics for communication sciences and disorders. The author clearly defines and illustrates the foundational concepts of statistics, including statistical vocabulary, population parameters, sampling methods, and descriptive methods like measures, correlation, and regression. Emphasis is placed on the topic of probability because a firm grasp of the probabilistic approach is essential for any clinician to generate a precise diagnosis. The readers of this textbook will: Comprehend how clinical research reflects a series of steps that conform with the scientific method of problem solving (observation, hypothesis formation, hypothesis testing, verification, and evaluation). Appreciate the importance of including rationales in a research study that entail three interrelated tasks: description (why it was done), explanation (what was done and to whom), contextualization (how the results relate to other bodies of knowledge). Distinguish between "statistical significance" and "clinical significance." Value the importance of scientific literacy as a major ingredient of evidence practice. With its comprehensive scope and timely content is the ideal text for students of communication sciences and disorders who wish to engage in truly evidence-based practice.

Current Issues in Applied Memory Research

FREEDownload : Current Issues in Applied Memory Research

Current Issues in Applied Memory Research (Current Issues in Memory) by Graham M. Davies and Daniel B. Wright
English | 2010-01-21 | ISBN: 1841697273 | PDF | 280 pages | 3 MB

Current Issues in Applied Memory Research
Research on applied memory is one of the most active, interesting and vibrant areas in experimental psychology today. This book provides descriptions of cutting-edge research and applies them to three key areas of contemporary investigation: education, the law and neuroscience.

In the area of education, findings from the study of memory are described which could have a major impact on testing practice, revision techniques for examinations and teaching basic literacy and numeracy. In applications to the law, recent findings shed new light on the dynamics of child abuse investigations, the status of traumatic memories recovered after long delays and a further challenge for the eyewitness: change blindness. Finally, in neuroscience, contributions cover the frightening question of whether patients can remember incidents during surgical operations under anaesthetic, the unexpected impact of handedness and rapid eye movements on memory proficiency and the status of déjà vu: mystical experience or memory error?

These accounts of recent research on applied memory have been written by leading experts in the field from both Europe and America, with the non-specialist in mind. They will interest students who wish to extend their reading beyond core material in cognitive psychology, graduates on more specialised courses in education, forensics and neuropsychology, and all those who wish to enrich their knowledge of the contemporary frontiers of applied memory research.
