PSYC 104. Research Practicum in Language and Mind
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 investigated how people understand the perspective of conversational partners, how comprehenders resolve linguistic ambiguity, how perceivers infer what a speaker means from what they have said, and hemispheric differences in the way the brain processes language. 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.
