PSYC 4477 Research Practicum: Cognitive Psychology of Memory (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course introduces students to the research process in the cognitive psychology of memory. Research in memory examines how people encode and retrieve information (e.g., personal experiential information and world knowledge). Topics will include implicit memory, explicit memory, semantic memory, and working memory. Class readings will come from journal articles. Students will analyze these articles and lead class discussions. The ultimate goal is to have students propose a novel study and possibly carry out a research project. This will entail reviewing the relevant literature, identifying a novel research question, designing an experiment, interpreting results, and writing up the experiment in publication format.
