Increasing your knowledge on the rules for planning and conducting experiments is important for all types of academic majors. Students from applied physiology and kinesiology, exercise science, exercise physiology, motor behavior, sport psychology, sport management, physical therapy, and occupational therapy readily acquired and used this knowledge. This eBook focuses on causes and effects as the most important for advancing science, whereas threats to internal validity are potential confounds. Minimizing threats to internal validity should be a primary goal in selecting an appropriate experimental design as well as considering appropriate statistical analyses. Thus, engage in research methods, develop functional skills, and become fulfilled.
James Cauraugh, Ph.D., is a Professor and Associate Dean for Research in the College of Health and Human Performance at the University of Florida. His teaching in the department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology has included both undergraduate and graduate courses in research methods, statistics, and motor learning/control as well as mentoring students toward their degrees. An active researcher throughout his career, his focused line of research investigates an important health care and society issue: post stroke motor control in individuals with chronic hemiparesis in their impaired arm. His research explored theoretically sound motor learning and control variables that influence stroke motor recovery progress and has produced an h-index of 23 and a g-index of 48. Four grants from the American Heart Association and one from the National Institutes of Health have funded his work. He has served as a grant reviewer for: (a) NIH Study Section; Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Sciences, (b) American Heart Association, (c) United Kingdom Stroke Association, and (d) Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Dr. Cauraugh serves on three journal editorial boards, is an ad hoc reviewer for 12 other journals, and is a member of the National Academy of Kinesiology.
