The intent of this chapter is not to catalogue research methodologies in health psychology but rather to emphasize the areas most psychology students have not been exposed to, particularly, epidemiological research. General research issues in psychophysiology and clinical psychology will also be discussed to provide a foundation for later chapters, and issues of particular relevance to health psychology research will be delineated. Research using methodology from experimental and clinical psychology to investigate issues in health psychology will also be illustrated.
