PSYC 1072 Memory in Everyday Life (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Memory doesn't just help us to excel on exams or to reminisce with friends. The ability to learn from past experiences makes us who we are and allows us to function in society. This course uses the study of memory as a way to explore the psychological research process. We will examine how we remember and why we forget, how our memories are tied to our sense of self and to our relations to others in society, and how everyone from advertisers to professors can capitalize on the nature of memory to influence what we remember about an experience.
