This course is an advanced introduction to cognitive psychology. Students will develop an understanding of major areas and some of the current hot topics in this field: perception, memory, decision making, language, attention, everyday cognition, cognitive engineering, and human error. We will use a lecture format, but sometimes engage in active learning, for example, taking part in experiments and solving problems. Grading will be based on the class attendance and assignments.
