Cognitive Processes

Cognitive Psychology is the study of human mental processes, including perception, attention, memory, problem solving, and language.

The course emphasizes the experiments that have led to theoretical models of how the mind works. Classroom demonstrations are used to provide an intuitive feel for the questions that cognitive psychologists are trying to answer.

Discussions center around applying the material to everyday life. For example;
  • Is there a best way to study for a test? Are there problem solving strategies that will make that math course easier to understand?
  • Why is it easy to remember the theme song for Gilligan's Island, but hard to remember where you left your keys?
