Psychology of Learning and Memory
PSYC 341
Spring 2017 not offered
Crosslisting: NS&B 341

This course aims to provide students with an in-depth overview/exploration of the psychological and neural processes underlying learning and memory. Topics to be covered include different memory systems and frameworks (e.g., working memory, semantic memory, episodic memory), remembering and forgetting (e.g., phenomenal experience of remembering, various mechanisms of forgetting), reality/source monitoring (e.g., memory attributions, true and false memories), and the influence of emotional and social factors on learning and memory (e.g., social remembering). We will explore these topics through critical reading/discussion of theoretical and empirical research articles in the fields of cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience.
