Expanded Course Description
Cognitive psychology is the study of mental processes spanning low level sensory processes to higher level thinking. Major topics addressed in this class are perception, attention, memory, language, reasoning, and decision making. Central themes are the nature of mental representations, the role of context, and the role of expectancies in perception, attention, and memory. Focus is on theory and data in mainstream cognitive psychology while also making contact with research in other areas. This is a social science course in which core psychological concepts of mental representation and expectancies will be introduced and explored in the various areas of human cognition, so that the student who successfully navigates the course should have gained knowledge about the major findings and principles in the field. The course will examine key issues in cognition, various perspectives and models of cognition, as well as fundamental methods (such as experimental methods, data interpretation, neural correlates) will be introduced to familiarize students with the process of scientific reasoning. Overall the subject matter of the course will be relatively broad covering much of the current knowledge on cognition.
