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: (1) 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; (2) times of crisis, adaptation, and "the dark night". and (3) 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, Jung, Hillesum, Feild, Lessing, Soygal Rimpoche, Wilber, and others will form the basis of three short papers and one long final paper. There will be no final exam.

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/

This course carries concentration credit for psychology concentrators and natural science credit for non-psychology concentrators. 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 class can be e-mailed to Robert Pachella.

    PSYCH 459. Psychology of Aging.

    Section 001.

    Instructor(s): Marion Perlmutter (perlmut@umich.edu)

    Prerequisites: Psych. 350. (3).

    Credits: (3).

    Course Homepage: https://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2001/winter/psych/459/001.nsf

    This undergraduate course is designed to familiarize students with current knowledge about the constancies and changes that occur across adulthood, as well as with conceptual and research issues relevant to understanding the future of aging. Discussions will focus on plasticity of the aging process, and likely causes of age differences and age change. Our goal will be to understand the implications of age patterns for individuals, as well as for societies. By the end of the term, students should be able to characterize the typical, as well as range of possible, trajectories of adult development and aging. They should gain insights about the changes they can expect as they get older, and the things they can do to affect these changes. In addition, they should gain understanding of the needs of older persons, as well as an appreciation of the tremendous potential resource they offer.

    The course will cover theory, methods, data, and controversies relevant to age in adulthood. We will begin with an overview of the context of aging in the U.S. today, including discussions of attitudes about aging, and demographics of it. Then we will consider theories about aging, and methods of studying it. Adulthood age differences in biological, psychological, and social competencies will constitute the core of the course. Topics to be covered include changes in: physical capacities, health, sensation, memory, intelligence, reasoning, creativity, wisdom, personality, emotion, relationships, and roles associated with family, work, and community. The final portion of the course will address societal issues, including gender, ethnic, cultural, and historical diversity in aging, services, policies, and careers relevant to the old.

    A class web site will be integral to the course. Students will be expected to participate actively in both class and web site discussions, as well as to keep up with daily reading and written assignments. In addition, there will be several short reports, group projects, exams, and a final exam. The number of points accumulated on these various options will determine final grades.

    Instructor(s): Monique A Fleming (moniquef@umich.edu)

    Prerequisites: Psych. 360. (3).

    Credits: (3).

    Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

    The study of work teams is a thriving area of research for organizational psychologists. The course will utilize principles and concepts from organizational psychology to understand the nature of group behavior in organized work settings. A major goal is to discern fundamental determinants of group effectiveness by placing a greater emphasis on contextual influences than on intragroup factors. The course combines traditional learning methods (reading, lecture, and discussion) with skill development through participation in structured 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.

    This course will explore the experience and the construct of gender as lived by individual women and men. Students will be invited to examine how gender mediates one's relationship to the body, desire and identity and how, in turn, these relationships can challenge our assumptions about gender. We will consider the process of gender development, for both men and women, across the lifespan, and in a multicultural context. Relationships between gender and biology, social roles and relationships, work, violence, and mental health will also be examined. Readings, case studies, class discussions and films will supplement information presented through lectures.

    This course reviews the behavior of the dog family (Canidae), within the theoretical framework of evolutionary biology and behavioral ecology. The course emphasizes social behavior, including social structure, reproduction, parental care, cooperation, competition, and communication. We will focus on the domestic dog and its ancestor, the wolf, as well as other wild dog species (such as coyotes, jackals, and African wild dogs). Domestic dogs and wolves are very close relatives; they produce fertile hybrids, and recent genetic analyses suggest that they should be classified as a single species. Yet wolves and dogs show some consistent physical and behavioral differences. A detailed look at the behavior of wild wolves will serve as a foundation for investigating questions such as: (1) How are wolves and dogs similar and different behaviorally? (2) When, why, and how were wolves first domesticated? (3) How has human selection altered (or failed to alter) the basic nature of the wolf? Investigation of these and other questions will help students refine their knowledge of conceptual issues relevant to animal behavior in. This is a seminar and active participation in discussions is mandatory. Grades are based on 6 short essays (5 pages), a 10-15 page research paper, participation in discussion, and occasional quizzes on the readings. Video footage of dog and wolf behavior will be shown during class, and there will be opportunities to observe "live" social interactions among domestic dogs. The reading load is heavy and includes 4 books plus a course pack. To enroll in this class, you must have already taken at least two courses in animal behavior or get special permission from the instructor.

    Prerequisites: At least two of the following courses or permission of the instructor: Psychology 335, Psychology 432, Psychology 437/Anthropology 368, Psychology 530, Anthropology 526, Anthropology 568, Biology 130, Biology 492, Biology 494, SNRE 415/416, SNRE 505.

    PSYCH 614. Advanced Statistical Methods, II.

    Section 001 Analyzing Multivariate Data

    Instructor(s): Richard D Gonzalez (gonzo@umich.edu)

    Prerequisites: Psych. 613. Graduate standing. (3).

    Credits: (3).

    Course Homepage: http://www.umich.edu/~psycours/614/

    A graduate-level introduction to multivariate data analysis. The general flavor of this course will be intuitive. We will not cover proofs and time spent on matrix algebra will be minimal. The course will emphasize the application of multivariate statistical techniques. Topics reviewed include multidimensional scaling, principal components, factor analysis, multivariate analysis of variance, canonical correlation, discriminant analysis, cluster analysis, reliability theory, and structural equations modelling. Before getting to the multivariate material however, we need to finish the spillover from 613.

    Texts and Software Required texts are:
    Multidimensional Scaling by Davison
    and one (only one) of the following two:
    Using Multivariate Statistics by Tabachnik and Fidell
    Applied Multivariate Statistical Analysis by Johnson and Wichern The Tabachnik and Fidell book is more "cookbookish" than Johnson and Wichern. J&W use a little matrix algebra. I suggest you purchase the book that fits your own tastes for detail of mathematical explanation; browse through the two books and decide which one you'd prefer reading during the semester. I do not have preferences for the software package used in the course. The examples I will offer in class will be computed in SPSS, Splus, Maple, Matlab, KYST, SINDSCAL, SAS and ADDTREE, but students who know other packages are welcome to use those when possible. I'll bring up the issue of statistics packages throughout the course.

    Prerequisites: A strong background in data analysis is essential. Successful completion of a course on ANOVA/Regression and experience analyzing data is required. Students who took my Psychology 613 course will be adequately prepared and know about my own biases for how to do statistics. A willingness to tackle new problems and computer programs is also needed. Having access to your own data will come in handy for some problem sets because I will ask you to apply some of the techniques to your own data. If you do not have access to multivariate data, then I will provide you with data.

    Grading: Approximately every two weeks there will be a problem set. At least one of these will be a small group project. I encourage auditors to do the problem sets too. There will be two midterms in the course. One will be in class and the other will be a takehome midterm. The course grade will be a weighted average of the two midterms (each 25%) and the total of all problem sets and group projects (50%).

    Outline of Topics

    1. Complete remaining topics from 613
    2. Multidimensional scaling (two-way, three-way)
    3. Tree structures and cluster analysis
    4. Unfolding analysis
    5. A little matrix algebra
    6. Principal components analysis
    7. Covariance algebra
    8. Test theory (in particular, reliability)
    9. A very basic introduction to structural equations modelling (SEM)
    10. Review of repeated measures ANOVA
    11. Multivariate analysis of variance
    12. Discriminant analysis
    13. Canonical correlation

    This graduate seminar examines several contemporary frameworks in mathematical analysis of psychological processes and data, particularly with respect to measurement and decision.

    Topics include:

    1. Theory of measurement (measurement scale, extensive and conjoint strutures, meaningfulness, functional equation)
    2. Theory of psychological test (reliability, validity, item analysis, item response theory);
    3. Theory of signal detection (prior odds, criterion, bias, payoff, Type I and Type II errors); and depending on interest and time
    4. Two-person game theory (zero-sum games, nonzero-sum games cooperation and bargaining, meta-game).

    The course assumes a mathematical background of one year calculus and linear algebra, though derivatives/integrations are hardly used. The content is suited for graduate students both within and outside of Psychology (e.g., Statistics, Education). For more information, contact Prof. Jun Zhang: junz@umich.edu.

    This course offers an in-depth exploration of research and theory on emotions that cuts across traditional psychological subdisciplines. Emotions are complex, multiply-determined phenomena they influence our experience, our thinking, our actions, our relationships, as well as our mental and physical health. The character of emotions also changes over the lifecourse and reflects individual differences. This complexivity and significance makes the study of emotion an especially exciting and challenging task for researchers. Three recurring themes will emerge in our discussions over the course of the semester:

    1. the functions of emotions, in both present day and ancestral circumstances; and
    2. the ways people respond to and regulate their own emotion experiences; and
    3. the extent to which cultural and gender-related differences in emotion exist.

    Decision making is a fundamental human activity. That is why various aspects of decision making are examined throughout the academy, from all areas of psychology to biology, mathematics, economics, philosophy, history, law, business, engineering, health care, and public policy. Sometimes decision questions play only a small role in the primary concerns of any particular field or any given scholar whereas at other times they are central. Regardless, progress on these problems benefits greatly from the communication and debate of ideas across all arenas of decision scholarship. The Decision Consortium Seminar is a major forum for such interchanges. In each weekly session of the seminar, one member of the Consortium, from any of a variety of units in the University community, presents ideas or results from his or her decision research program. Participants in the seminar, informed by perspectives that are typically quite distinct from those of the presenter, offer their own observations and recommendations on the issues raised. Students who elect this course participate in these discussions fully. On alternate weeks, they also meet as a group with the instructor to discuss independently issues that arose in the main seminar per se and to review the commentaries that student participants write about the seminar sessions. Besides their acquaintance with new and exciting ideas and findings on decision making questions, students can expect a host of other benefits from participation in the seminar. Among them are new skills in the review and synthesis of cross-disciplinary ideas and an awareness of valuable methods and literatures that extend beyond those in students' home disciplines. An especially gratifying benefit reported by students in the past has been the development ties, and even collaborations, with students and faculty who share their enthusiasm for questions about how people decide and how they could decide better.

    Two of the most exciting recent trends in the study of human language processing are the growth of psycholinguistic data cross-linguistically, and the development of specific processing theories taking the form of computational models. Cross-linguistic evidence is important because all major theories of linguistic processing aspire to universality. They are not intended to be theories of how a specific language (e.g., English) is processed, but abstract cognitive theories of language processing that can be instantiated with the particulars of any language. Nevertheless, it has only been in the last decade of research that a substantial body of psycholinguistic evidence has accumulated about languages other than English. During this same time period, computational modeling has introduced new theoretical ideas and methodologies into the field, along with a great deal of controversy. The goals of this course are threefold: (a) to understand the current "hot" theoretical issues in sentence processing (and exactly how they relate to the issues that defined the early history of the field) (b) to understand the nature of the empirical evidence that bears on these issues, paying particular attention to cross-linguistic data, and (c) to understand the role of recent computational theories in the study of sentence processing. The course will be structured as a mix of instructor presentation and student-led discussion of papers from the literature.

    This course will survey recent findings concerning the mechanisms of action and the behavioral effects and side effects of psychoactive drugs, primarily those used in psychiatry and neurology. It will also cover drug and alcohol abuse. Lectures and separate discussion sessions will deal with the major issues that are of concern to psychologists. As the various types of drugs are discussed (anti-depressants, anti-schizophrenia drugs, anti-parkinson drugs, anti-anxiety drugs, stimulants for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, cocaine and amphetamine, sedative-hypnotics, alcohol, opioids, hallucinogenics), the relevant details of brain cell synaptic function and transmitter pathways will be highlighted as needed for an integrated view of drug mechanisms and the neurochemical basis of psychiatric disorders and substance abuse. The course is geared primarily for graduate students in clinical psychology and related areas who have not had an academic background in neurochemistry or biopsychology.
