Quantitative Psychology is arguably one of the oldest disciplines within the field of psychology and nearly all psychologists are exposed to quantitative psychology in some form. While textbooks in statistics, research methods, and psychological measurement exist none offer a unified treatment of quantitative psychology. The SAGE Handbook of Quantitative Methods in Psychology does just that. Each chapter covers a methodological topic with equal attention paid to established theory and the challenges facing methodologists as they address new research questions using that particular methodology. The reader will come away from each chapter with a greater understanding of the methodology being addressed as well as an understanding of the directions for future developments within that methodological area.

Analysis of Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Cognitive processes are widely distributed across the whole brain, involving interacting and overlapping brain regions. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides a non-invasive, in vivo, quantitative measurement of psycho-physiologically relevant parameters that are related to cognitive operations in the normal and abnormal brain. The combination of sophisticated experimental designs and powerful statistical analysis of MRI signals has become a powerful remarkably useful tool for cognitive neuroscience and psychology. The present chapter tries to give an overview of the main statistical tools used in structural and functional MRI analysis. In addition, we will also consider the analysis (preprocessing) and treatment of magnetic resonance images. While the following sections are restricted to MRI, ...
