Quoting from the Purdue OWL APA site:

"Give the secondary source in the references list; in the text, name the original work, and give a citation for the secondary source. For example, if Seidenberg and McClelland's work is cited in Coltheart et al. and you did not read the original work [by Seidenberg & McClelland], list the Coltheart et al. reference in the References. In the text, use the following citation:

In Seidenberg and McClelland's study (as cited in Coltheart, Curtis, Atkins, & Haller, 1993), ..."

In your list of references at the end of your paper, give the reference for Coltheart, but not for Seidenberg.
