The topics to be covered include various aspects of the psychology of human perception, attention, memory, thinking (including problem solving and reasoning), and consciousness. The material will include data and theory about the relationship between cognition and brain function. The course will emphasize not only the content material represented by these topics, but also the process by which researchers develop theories and collect evidence about relevant issues. Students are required to have taken an introductory psychology course that included material on psychological experimentation. Performance will be evaluated via objective examinations that will stress knowledge of the material and understanding of the relationship between theory and data. Readings will be drawn from a text and several primary sources.

The course will include lecture, discussion, demonstrations, in-class experiments, and practice on problem-solving exercises. The textbook for this course is Sternberg, R.J. (2006); Cognitive Psychology (4th Edition), Belmont, CA: Thomson Wadsworth.
