This course will cover the basics of human cognition, a field of study that explores how people perceive, learn, remember, and think about information. Cognitive Psychology is about how we take in information about the world, make sense of it, store it for later use, and then try to retrieve it when it's needed.

In this course you will understand how best to study for tests, how to read effectively, and how to remember difficult-to-learn material. You will learn that there is much more going on in your mind than you are conscious of. You are aware of experiences such as seeing something, remembering a past event, or thinking about how to solve a problem, but behind each of these experiences are many complex and largely invisible processes. We will delve into some of the activities that go on in our minds that are responsible for everyday experiences such as perceiving, remembering, and thinking.

You will learn there are many practical connections between the results of cognitive psychology research and everyday life. Examples of these connections will be prevalent throughout the course.

The course is structured into ten distinctive modules covering the main aspects of the discipline of Cognitive Psychology and its application to contemporary phenomena: Cognitive Neuroscience, Perception, Attention and Consciousness, Memory, Knowledge, Language, Problem Solving and Creativity, Judgment, Decision Making and Reasoning, and Cognition and Emotion. The format of instruction will include lecture, audiovisual materials, small group discussions, class activities, and in-class discussions.
