PSYC 333 Foundations of Cognition

Last offered Spring 2014

This course will broadly cover various aspects of early cognitive development and will include topics such as memory, numerical cognition, language acquisition, and understanding of other social beings. We will focus on aspects of the human mind that are present early in life and explore how these early systems evolve into more mature cognition. Students will be required to critically read seminal works that shaped the field and also examine new developments in the literature. All students will focus on a specific area of interest by conducting an original empirical research project.
