Description

This course is a general introduction to cognitive psychology, serving as a prerequisite to advanced courses that treat various topics in greater depth. Topics covered include perception, memory, imagery, reasoning, problem-solving, and decision-making. In covering these topics, relevant methods, data, and theory are reviewed. Historical and interdisciplinary aspects of many of these topics are touched upon.

Course Requirements:

The performance will be evaluated mainly via three objective examinations and a short paper (3-5 pages) that stresses knowledge of the material and understanding of the relationship between theory and data. Readings will be drawn from a text and several primary sources.

Class Format:

The course will include lectures, in-class discussions, and demonstrations.
