# 贝叶斯推论统计在心理学研究中的应用Application of Bayesian Data Analyses in Psychological Research

In recent years, the Bayesian Data Analysis method has increasingly received attention from psychological researchers. This method allows them to directly and objectively estimate the probability of a research hypothesis by deriving a posterior probability from the prior distribution and their own research data, or to use the Bayesian factor to directly compare which of two hypotheses can better explain their data. In this literature review paper, we summarized several major strengths of this inference method and its deficiencies. We used examples to illustrate how it can be used in psychological research and summarized some software and textbooks that psychological researchers can use to learn the Bayesian data analysis method. This article aims to introduce a supplementary method into psychological research.
