Course Description

This course will focus on humans as information processors within the realms of memory, attention, language, problem solving & reasoning, pattern recognition, mental imagery, and neuropsychology. Both psychological theories and research on each of these topics will be covered, with effort made to link empirical findings to real-world applications (such as eyewitness testimony, the hazards of cell phones while driving, etc.).

Grading Policy

There will be 3 exams (multiple choice + essays) and one research paper due. In addition, students will be expected to participate in simulations of multiple experiments (both computer simulations and in class experiments).
