PSYC 033. Cognitive Psychology


Cognitive psychology is one of the intellectual foundations on which modern psychological science is built. This course has two principal goals. On the one hand, it provides an integrated overview of a variety of subfields of cognitive psychology including perception, attention, memory, language, concepts, imagery, thinking, decision-making, and problem solving. On the other hand, it develops a coherent conceptual framework for understanding how behavioral experiments can illuminate the workings of the human mind.
