Spring 2007 not offered
This course provides an introduction to cognitive psychology. We will talk about the psychology of human perception, attention, memory, language, and thinking. The material will cover the processes by which researchers develop and experimentally test theories. An important part of this methodology concerns the manner in which knowledge of brain function can illuminate theories of cognition. Special attention will also be paid to ways in which the findings of cognitive psychology can inform practical issues in everyday life. Class activities will include lectures, discussions, demonstrations, in-class experiments, and practice on problem-solving exercises.
