Research in Psychology is a wide and multifaceted field, which can be greatly strengthened by the use of R. Those already familiar with R can benefit by and learn from understanding how cognitive and behavioural research is carried out. This workshop will explore the broad fields of experimental psychology in the R framework. It will introduce participants to quantitative data analysis tools, including eye-tracking data, and discuss how various packages and forms of analysis (such as text and geographical data) can all be instrumentalised for psychology research. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to try some hands-on coding with a dataset on mental health factors.
