Cognitive Science Capstone Seminar
Required Sequence: PSYC 345 & PSYC346
PSYC 345
Fall 2010
Section: 01  

Broadly defined, cognitive science is an interdisciplinary field that seeks to examine the nature of the human mind. The new cognitive science concentration in the Wesleyan Psychology Department was created by a committee of cognitive and developmental psychologists who study issues regarding numerical representation, categorization, decision making, reading, spatial representation, memory, social cognition, and how language can shape thought. This seminar is an opportunity for advanced students to come together and discuss their research with a community of researchers who are interested in questions regarding cognition and its development. It is meant for students who are currently involved in the cognitive science concentration and/or who are currently conducting research in an approved laboratory.
