PSY 314 - Memory and Mind


4 credit(s)
Students delve into Cognitive Psychology by studying the nature of memory– a cognitive skill we all take for granted, but that is necessary for our survival. Topics covered include historical perspectives in the study of memory, theories and current research in Information Processing, Mental Representation, and Long-term Declarative Memory Systems, changes in memory abilities over the life-span, and applied issues related to memory (in)accuracy. Through in-class lab exercises, writing and class discussion, students achieve a deep understanding of the nature of cognition and key role that memory plays.
Prerequisite(s): Sophomore standing or above (30 or more completed credits) and PSY 150  with minimum grade of C.
