This course is designed to allow advanced students to conduct supervised research in the area of the cognitive psychology of reasoning. Working as a team with the instructor and other members of the research group, students will undertake a semester-long experimental research project on a topic in reasoning. The class will meet in a weekly seminar to read and discuss research articles, to formulate plans for studies, and to provide updates on experiments being conducted by members of the group.

Towards this goal, each class period is devoted to brainstorming, developing, critiquing, revising, refining, and ultimating implementing and executing the design idea. The final project for the class is to produce a scientific report describing the work.
