PSYCH 418 / RELIGION 448. Psychology and Spiritual Development.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Richard D Mann (rdmann@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

This course explores the stages of spiritual development, beginning with awakening and initiation, through the deepening of direct experience and the formulation of a coherent spiritual path, including the notion of an ultimate attainment. It explores the function of spiritual groups and teachers in facilitating this development. Of particular interest are:

  • the spiritual seeker's experience of 'little death,' the mode of apparent discontinuity when the 'old life' is supplanted by a new identity and mode of living;
  • times of crisis, adaptation, and 'the dark night'; and
  • the experience of 'physical death,' as seen from the perspective of a lifetime of encountering both relative and absolute reality.

By means of personal narratives and fictional accounts, this course explores how diverse traditions create and value these moments of surrender and transformation. Lectures and readings by Hesse, Thich Nhat Hanh, Hillesum, Wilber, Batchellor, and others will form the basis of two short papers and one long final paper. There will be no final exam.

PSYCH 433. Biopsychology of Motivation.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Oliver C Schultheiss (oschult@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: PSYCH 230. (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: http://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2002/fall/psych/433/001.nsf

This course will make students familiar with the biopsychological substrates of motivational processes in animals and humans. We will examine general motivational processes such as approach and avoidance, but also look at specific motivational systems such as hunger, sex, aggression, or attachment and their underlying brain circuitry. In addition, we will explore to what extent motivation and learning influence each other and whether motivation and goal-directed behavior can be conscious or nonconscious in humans. Students are expected to have a solid background knowledge in biopsychology (e.g., through Psychology 230). Their course grade will be determined on the basis of their attendance and participation, weekly short essay papers, and a final exam. The course will be taught as a mixture of student-moderated topic presentations, lecture, and discussion.

What does it mean to be a woman? This interdisciplinary seminar approaches this question by beginning with an even more fundamental one: What does it mean to be female? The course will introduce students to recent and innovative research on women in the fields of psychology, biology, and anthropology. The course integrates three approaches to understanding modern women. One approach compares human females with females in other animals, especially primates, within the framework of evolutionary theory (natural selection). Such comparisons help to illuminate the evolutionary origins of universal aspects of human female behavioral biology, including, for example, female sexuality and mate choice, child-bearing and child-rearing, and competition and cooperation among women. A second approach examines the physiology underlying critical events in women's lives, including menstruation, fertility, conception, pregnancy, birth, lactation, motherhood, and menopause and aging. A third approach compares women's lives in different societies, to examine the effects of ecology and culture on many aspects of female behavior and physiology. By synthesizing concepts and evidence from these three approaches, we will be in better position to address critical modern issues like: Why do men tend to hold more political and economic power than women? What is the relationship between male economic and political power and male control of female sexuality and reproduction? What factors influence birth rate in different human populations? How do sexuality and social relations change as women age? Under what conditions do women tend to form close, cooperative bonds with other women? What strategies are most likely to empower women in their struggle for self-determination? Students will be encouraged to consider the relevance of course information for their own lives (e.g., in relation to birth control, eating disorders and body imagery, male violence against women, female sexuality, mate choice, women's friendships, women's rights). Course requirements include a substantial amount of reading, including scientific journal articles available online and three books (Natalie Angier, Woman: an Intimate Geography, Sarah Hardy, Mother Nature: a History of Mothers, Infants, and Natural Selection, and Peter Ellison, On Fertile Ground: A Natural History of Human Reproduction). Grades will be based on participation in class discussion, quizzes on readings, several short essays, weekly journal entries on topics chosen by students, and a write-up of a life-history interview with an older woman of your choice.

PSYCH 442. Perception, Science, and Reality.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Robert G Pachella (pachella@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Introductory psychology. (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: http://www.umich.edu/~psycours/442/

The course focuses on basic perceptual phenomena and theories. It also examines the general relationship between perception and scientific observation. Topics include: sensory transduction and psychophysics; Gestalt organization; constancy and contrast effects; expectation; selective attention; perceptual learning; and symbolic representation.

While this course is oriented toward the natural sciences, it also considers social, philosophical, and aesthetic perspectives, since at its most general level, human perception concerns the questions of how and why human beings use sensory information to conceive of, and experience immediate reality the way they do.

The instructor assumes no particular psychology background, and non-psychology concentrators are welcome. Grades will be determined on the basis of two short papers (worth a total of 40% of the grade) and one longer paper (worth 60% of the grade). Questions concerning this course can be e-mailed to Robert Pachella.

PSYCH 449(542). Decision Processes.

Section 001 Meets with Psychology 722.001

Instructor(s): J Frank Yates (jfyates@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: An introductory course in statistics is recommended but not required. (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: http://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2002/fall/psych/449/001.nsf

Consider the following:

  • Should I take Psychology 449 or Art History 477?
  • I'm not really good at chemistry and things like that. My grades in those courses stink. So should I give up my dream of becoming a doctor?
  • Other companies are making tons of money selling sport utility vehicles. But they seem to have the market locked up. Besides, I have bad feelings about the pollution those things cause. Should we enter the SUV market anyway?
  • My client, Mr. Thomas, thinks that Consolidated is responsible for his injuries and thus he wants to sue them. Should I advise that he go through with that plan?
  • Floyd and I have been going together for several years, and now he wants to get married. Should I give in and marry him, despite my misgivings?
  • As alderman for the fifth ward, should I vote for this legislation that would change the zoning rules for the city?

Questions like these illustrate the kinds of decision problems people confront all the time, in their personal and professional lives. They provide the ultimate focus of Psychology 449, "Decision Processes." Specifically, my primary aims in this course are to help the student do two things: (a) achieve an understanding of how people individually and collectively actually solve decision problems; and (b) develop an understanding of how people including the student him- or herself could decide better than they would be inclined to decide naturally.

Should you elect Psychology 449? One consideration you should take into account is whether the aims described above fit with your interests. That is, do the aims excite you? Another consideration pertains to your future plans. Psychology 449 would be good preparation if your plans include either:

scholarship (e.g., in graduate school and thereafter) on basic processes in cognitive psychology, social psychology, organizational psychology, or related areas, e.g., political science, economics, marketing

or

professional practice (either immediately after college or after professional school) in areas where decision making is critical, e.g., business, law, health care, counseling, operations engineering.

How is Psychology 449 organized? The entire class meets twice a week, in 1-* hour "lecture" sessions. And on Fridays, each student attends either of two 1-hour discussion sessions. Psychology 449 is built around what I call the "cardinal decision issue perspective." This is a way of thinking about decision problems which focuses on things like what decisions are, what it ought to mean to say that a decision is "good" or "bad," and the kinds of questions that must be answered for virtually any decision problem that arises. The specific topics we will address are organized according to the categories distinguished in the cardinal issue perspective. One of my major goals is to have you develop a deep appreciation for that perspective since it can help you think through the problems you will face as a student of decision making and as a decision maker.

Our treatment of a given topic typically proceeds as follows: First, students do the reading for the given topic. Then, in the "lectures," the key questions surrounding the topic are illustrated through demonstrations or exercises in which all students participate actively. As the instructor, I offer a class-interactive presentation in which I introduce essential ideas not covered in the readings and integrate all we have seen on the topic, seeking to provide an integrated picture that makes sense to the student. The Friday discussion sessions are devoted primarily to active discussions of question lists provided for the readings and to tasks related to students' team projects.

The requirements of the course include:

  • attendance and active participation in class
  • exercises
  • a midterm and a final examination
  • a term project

The study of work teams is a thriving area of research for organizational psychologists. The course will cover state-of-the-art theory and research on the nature of group behavior in organized work settings, and fundamental factors that lead to group effectiveness. We will examine both contextual factors (for example, organizational resources, the design of the task, rewards) and factors within the group (for example, feelings of safety among group members). The course combines traditional learning methods (reading, lecture, discussion) with skill development through participation in group exercises. The course is structured so that learning can take place at three levels: through meetings of the class as a whole; in small teams carrying out course-related exercises or projects; and in individual reading, study, and analysis. Overall, what you learn from this course will be as much a product of peer interaction as it will be a product of other course activities. Evaluation will be based on class participation, group projects, and peer ratings. The course pack that you will be using is from Accu-Copy.

PSYCH 531. Advanced Topics in Biopsychology.

Section 546 Sleep Neurobiology, Medicine, and Society. Meets with NeurSci 520.001.

Instructor(s): Ralph Lydic (rlydic@umich.edu), Helen A. Baghdoyan

Prerequisites: PSYCH 230. (3). May be repeated for credit.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: https://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2002/fall/neurosci/520/001.nsf

The objective of this course is to give students the most up-to-the-date information on the biological, personal, and societal relevance of sleep. Personal relevance is emphasized by the fact that the single best predictor of daytime performance is the quality of the previous night's sleep. The brain actively generates sleep, and the first third of the course will overview the neurobiological basis of sleep cycle control.

Sleep will be used as a vehicle for teaching basic neuroanatomical and neuropharmacological principles. This information will provide a cellular-level understanding of how sleep deprivation, jet lag, and substances such as alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine alter sleep and wakefulness. It is now clear that sleep significantly alters physiology.

The second third of the course will cover sleep-dependent changes in physiology and sleep disorders medicine. Particular emphasis will be placed on disorders of excessive sleepiness, insomnia, and sleep-dependent changes in autonomic control. Chronic sleep deprivation impairs immune function and promotes obesity. Deaths due to all causes are most frequent between 4:00 and 6:00 A.M., and the second portion of the class will highlight the relevance of sleep for preventive medicine.

The societal relevance of sleep will be considered in the final portion of the class. In an increasingly complex and technologically oriented society, operator-error by one individual can have a disastrous negative impact on public health and safety. Fatigue-related performance errors contributed to the Three Mile Island and Chernobyl nuclear power plant failures and to the Exxon Valdez Alaskan oil spill. The personal relevance of fatigue-related performance errors will be considered by reviewing recent data showing that in the U.S. more people die from medical mistakes each year than from highway accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS.

Fulfillment of course objectives will be quantified by pre- versus post-class informational self-evaluation. In-class arousal levels will be facilitated by seminar participation.

This course will be innovative in both method and substance. Students will learn how to promote inquiry about objects and places through teaching strategies such as question-posing, self-guided discovery, and collaborative problem solving. Multiple perspectives on objects and deep analyses of free-choice environments will be the focus of our experiences in these settings. Aesthetic as well as cognitive analyses will be elicited. Visual literacy for "reading objects" will be examined as critical thinking skills. Web-based discussion groups, virtual tours, and examination of digitized virtual objects will be examined as ways of extending first order encounters with objects. Non-cognitive outcomes, such as environmental attitudes and ecological stewardship, will be studied in indoor and outdoor settings. Aesthetic appreciation will be analyzed developmentally in art museums and gardens. Discipline-based reasoning strategies will be explored in history museums. Autobiographical memories and personal meaning making will be examined with objects in all settings. These dynamic processes will expand students' views of learning as well as their appreciation for the power of objects and places to provoke new understanding.

Prerequisites: PSYCH 280. (3). May be repeated for credit.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

This course examines the theoretical and empirical connections between violence in society and portrayals of violence in the mass media. Because one cannot fully understand the relation between media violence and violence in society without first understanding the causes of aggressive and violent behavior, we will begin by examining the nature of aggressive and violent behavior and how it develops. We will consider both situational factors that promote aggression across individuals and personal factors that account for individual differences. We will examine the physiological, psychological, cognitive, social, and environmental factors implicated in the development of habitual aggressive and violent behavior. Then, we will discuss the role of the mass media as socializing agents and delve into the research and theory on media violence and aggression. After critically examining the empirical research relating exposure to violence to short term and long term increases in aggressive behavior, we will elaborate the psychological processes that explain these relations. We will also consider what theoretical extensions are necessary to account for the effects of new media such a electronic games and specific types of media violence such as pornography. Finally, we will discuss societal and individual approaches to controlling violence and to mitigating the effects of media violence.

The transactional perspective will permit interpreting the relative importance of what the child brings to the situation, the experience that the environment provides, and how each is affected by the other. The ecological perspective will permit an analysis of the social environment into separate systems that influence the child including the family, school, peer group, ethnic and economic status. Specific topics to be considered include temperament, attachment and the development of social relationships, the social regulation of behavior, dimensions of parenting practices, and alternative family structures.

The class is a PhD course on methods in cognitive psychology and cognitive development relevant to instructional questions. In this course, we will cover major quantitative and qualitative laboratory methods for understanding cognitive processes and development of students. The topics will include chronometric methods, verbal protocols/think aloud methods, error analysis, eye fixations, psychometrics, gesture analysis, video/discourse analysis, and computational modeling. We will cover applications of these methodologies in the context of students learning of language/reading, mathematics, and science. Finally, we will consider issues of applying laboratory research in cognitive psychology to different instructional contexts. The goal of the course is for students to gain an understanding of kinds of inferences that might be made from studies that use each methodology and the ability to read and critically evaluate articles that use the methodologies. Students should also have some ability to "go from here" to design a study using a particular methodology or to chose a laboratory methodology suitable for a specific question after taking this course. Note that this course does not cover experimental design or statistics topics rather, we focus on the logical inferences about cognitive processes and representations that can be made from different types of information.

The aim of this course is to provide a framework for thinking about the social and cultural context of well-being and mental health, as a stepping stone toward conceptualizing a process model for change. Our assumption is that students signing up for this course would eventually like to be able to develop testable preventive interventions based in social science models integrating etiology of problem development with theories of change. Preventive interventions aim to promote well-being while reducing risk of a variety of negative life outcomes, with particular focus on mental health. Signs of well-being include life satisfaction, appropriate achievement of developmental milestones (such as developing social skills, completing school) and attainment of normative adult social functioning (establishment of a family, community engagement, career attainment, financial security). Signs of mental health problems include symptoms of anxiety or depression, for children and youth, 'acting out,' 'externalizing,' or 'deviant/delinquent' behavior, and for older teens and adults, substance abuse, and diagnosed psychiatric disorder, self-report or observation of difficulties in community functioning. Our goal is to provide a framework of information about what is known about psychosocial disorder in young people and adults, with emphasis poverty, race-ethnicity and culture both as risk or protective factors, mediators or moderators of other risk and protective factors, and as potential elements in design of preventive interventions
