This text fills a gap between traditional cognitive psychology textbooks and independent reading of scientific journals. The author presents a balanced collection of classic articles from the '50s and '60s along with contemporary articles with a strong focus on experimental reports. Introductions at the beginning of each article provide a context for the article and, when necessary, familiarize the student with the terminology and research techniques it uses. At the end of the introduction, the author suggests things for the students to think about while reading the article.
