Updated ResearchThroughout, authors have updated their articles with new findings and insights. For example, Henry Roediger, Kathleen McDermott, and Mark McDaniel discuss new research that shows taking notes by hand leads to greater comprehension and memory than typing on your computer. Thinking Critically Questions Articles now conclude with questions that encourage students to think more deeply about the material and apply it to their own lives.The FABBS/Worth PartnershipThe concept for Psychology and the Real World came from the Foundation for the Advancement of Brain and Behavior Science (FABBS) and was produced in collaboration with Worth Publishers. The FABBS Foundation is an educational, non-profit organization established in 2004 to enhance understanding of the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior. Supporting the work of 21 societies across the spectrum of modern psychology, FABBS focuses on educating the public about the contributions of psychological science to the well-being of individuals and society, recognizing scholars who have made significant contributions to these sciences, and facilitating productive dialogue between scientists and relevant stakeholders to inform policies and improve lives. The authors have volunteered their contributions and have agreed that all grants, advances, and royalties and other financial earnings will go to FABBS to support their educational mission. The book is affordably priced to students whose instructors adopt one of Worth’s introductory psychology texts and Worth is returning all of the revenues so earned directly to FABBS.
