- A pretty good, short summary of the research goals of human factors psychology: http://psychology.about.com/od/branchesofpsycholog1/f/human-factors.htm
- The Human Factors and Egonomics site provides links to recent research, etc. https://www.hfes.org/web/Default.aspx
- Ronald Shapiro has been working for quite a while to design learning activities appropriate to all ages that incorporate human factors research: http://humanfactorsblog.org/2011/01/28/profiles-in-human-factors-dr-ron-shapiro/
- Scott Miller (hi Scott! Thanks again!) sent me this summary of research on cereal box design/positioning that might be a good introduction into human factors research/methodology. This site describes a study that showed positioning of a cereal box and cover design significantly influences "brand trust"
