Research and theory in cognitive science focusing on the core areas of attention, memory, thinking and reasoning, including perspectives from neuroscience, connectionist models, and artificial intelligence. Topics include the role of attention in perception, the dynamics of human memory, and the role of heuristics of reasoning, judging, and deciding. Laboratory exercises will require collecting and analyzing data from classic experimental tasks addressing sensory memory, selective attention, working memory capacity, and memory bias from stereotypes. Prerequisites: PSYC 100, 201. See department chair.
