Paradigm (experimental)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In the behavioural sciences (e.g. psychology, biology, neurosciences), an experimental paradigm, is an experimental setup that is defined by certain fine-tuned standards, and often has a theoretical background.

An experimental setup is a way to conduct a certain type of experiment.

A paradigm in this technical sense, however, is not a way of thinking as it is in the epistemological meaning.
