PSYC 102. Research Practicum in Perception and Cognition
In this course, students conduct research projects singly or in small groups in collaboration with the instructor. Projects include designing, implementing, analyzing and reporting an experiment. Project topics are negotiated at the beginning of the semester. Past projects have studied eye-movements and decision-making, perception of the bodily self, self-motion and space perception, metaphor processing, and even experimental demand characteristics. All students meet together for a weekly lab meeting; additional weekly meeting times will be scheduled. When taken in the senior year, this course fulfills the comprehensive requirement in psychology.
This course may not be taken as pass/fail.
