We welcome back Dr. Louise Allen-Walker, Programme Director for the MSc Psychology in Education here at Cardiff Met, to discuss what research (and particularly quantitative research) looks like in psychology, and how we can be sure we approach it critically.

Louise has some clear explanations of how quantitative researchers set about their work, as well as some cautionary points about the oddities and pitfalls of working with numbers and reading psychology journals.

Finally, in the absence of the infamous Neuromyth Van, we challenge Louise to bust as many myths as she can in three minutes!
