PSY-203 Cognitive Psychology

This course provides an introduction to cognitive psychology. You will learn about the psychology of human perception, attention, memory, language, thinking (including problem solving and reasoning), and consciousness. The material will cover the processes by which researchers develop theories and test evidence. An important part of this methodology concerns the manner in which knowledge of brain function can illuminate theories of cognition. Activities will include lectures, discussions, demonstrations, in-class experiments, and practice on problem-solving exercises. Readings will be drawn from a text and several primary sources. Prerequisites: PSY-100
