Introduction to Cognitive Psychology

Welcome aboard! I assume that you know that you are in for a Cognitive Psychology course at the college level. I have designed this course as an overview of the scope of cognitive psychology, its key exciting findings, and the methods used by psychologists to arrive at those findings. I intend to impart to you an understanding of answers to a handful of broad questions in cognitive psychology such as what are the mechanisms that underlie attention and memory, how can we better understand how human language works, and what are the mental processes that make human decision-making prone to error. By the end of the semester, I hope you leave my class with the wisdom to understand basic principles of human cognition and the ability to see how textbook psychological principles play out in day to day life.
