PS 470 Research Practicum in Cognitive Psychology (Fall/Spring: 3)

This course introduces students to the research process in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience. The semester starts with a review of experimental design, common paradigms, statistical analysis, critical reading of journal articles, and ethics. Then, students work individually or in small groups to carry out a research project in an area of language or cognition that relates to cognitive neuroscience. Possible research topics are discussed in class. The research project entails reviewing the psychological and neuroscientific literature, identifying an appropriate research topic, designing and carrying out an empirical study, and evaluating and communicating the results.
