Mark Appelbaum

Emeritus Professor

My research interests involve the application of quantitative and data analytic methods to a wide variety of problems in psychology and the behavioral sciences. Among these applications are ones for the study of small samples, for dealing with analysis of variability, for understanding growth and change, and for the integration of biological (e.g. imaging and genetric) and behavioral data.

I was the founding editor of Psychological Methods, the APA senior journal dealing with methodological issues and was a former editor of the Psychological Bulletin.
