Memory in the Movies|
Fall 2009 not offered
This course is designed to show how memory works, and it serves as a complement to PSYC/NS&B221: Human Memory. This course is conceptually linked to PSYC/NS&B 221 in terms of topics covered, but it is an independent course. Students may take either course alone or both courses (concurrently or sequentially). Whereas PSYC/NS&B221 provides an in-depth overview of memory by examining psychology and neuroscience research, PSYC321 covers memory through major films and documentaries. Topics include amnesia, person recognition, savant memory, altered memories in science fiction, autobiographical memory, false memory, troubled memory, and memory changes in old age. Two films per week will be used to illustrate aspects of memory. This is not a course about film; it is a course about memory that uses film to inform viewers about memory.
Students will write short essays relating memory and film every two weeks.
