PS 433 Addiction, Choice, and Motivation (Fall/Spring: 3)

Prerequisite: Psychology 110 and at least two 200 level courses or higher in Psychology, Economics, or a Natural Science, or permission of instructor
This is a writing intensive course. Students write weekly prompts on course readings. The readings are drawn from the research literature on addiction and choice. The drug research includes biographical accounts, epidemiological studies, and experiments on drug effects and drug choice. The choice research includes studies with animals and humans that test simple quantitative models of rational choice and impulsiveness.
