Logic of Significance Testing

EXP 3905 Directed Study

1-12 sh (may be repeated indefinitely for credit)

EXP 4204 Sensation and Perception

3 sh (may not be repeated for credit)
Prerequisite: AND AND AND

Will survey the theory and literature related to the study of sensation and perception. Topics will include the neural mechanisms involved in coding sensory information, visual processing, audition, speech perception, cutaneous and chemical senses, development of perceptual processes, and impairment of vision and hearing.

EXP 4250 Human Factors Psychology

3 sh (may not be repeated for credit)

Surveys the field of human factors psychology. Specifically, the principles of psychology from various specialty areas (e.g., cognitive, experimental, industrial/organizational, physiological etc.) will be applied to the study of human performance in work settings. Students will learn how work is designed to capitalize on cognitive and physical capabilities and compensate for human limitations. Students will also become familiar with the tools and techniques that human factors psychologists use to study human-machine interaction and work design. Offered concurrently with ; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

EXP 4404 Psychology of Learning

3 sh (may not be repeated for credit)
Prerequisite:

Principles and applications of learning theories, including conditioning and extinction, reinforcement and punishment, attention, memory, cognitive processes and physiological correlates of memory and cognition. It is preferred that the student has had several other psychology courses.

EXP 4507 Memory and Cognition

3 sh (may not be repeated for credit)
Prerequisite: AND AND AND

Will survey theory and literature related to the study of human memory and cognition. Topics will include attention, memory, imagery, language and bilingualism, problem solving, metamemory, expertise, and the development of language and cognitive processes.

EXP 4905 Directed Study

EXP 5208 Advanced Sensation and Perception

Students must take before enrolling in this course. Students will develop an in-depth understanding of how human beings use environmental energies to sense and perceive the world. Topics include the examination of neural systems involved in vision, audition, somatosensation, olfaction, and gustation. Physiological, psychophysical, and cognitive research methodologies used to understand and predict human perception will be discussed.

EXP 5256 Human Factors Psychology

Surveys the field of human factors psychology. Specifically, the principles of psychology from various specialty areas (e.g., cognitive, experimental, industrial/organizational, physiological etc. ) will be applied to the study of human performance in work settings. Students will learn how work is designed to capitalize on cognitive and physical capabilities and compensate for human limitations. Students will also become familiar with the tools and techniques that human factors psychologists use to study human-machine interaction and work design. Offered concurrently with ; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

EXP 5575 Judgment and Decision Making

Seminar on current theories of human judgment and decision making. Normative models of decision making (based in statistics, philosophy, psychology, and economics) and descriptive models of decision making (based on research in cognitive psychology and social psychology) will be discussed. Naturalistic decision making and the role of expertise in judgment and decision making will also be discussed. Topics include judgment and decision making under a variety of conditions of uncertainty, including aviation, diagnosis and treatment decision in clinical psychology and medicine, forecasting, risk assessment, and jury decisions.

EXP 5905 Directed Study

EXP 6085 Seminar in Applied Psychological Sciences

3 sh (may not be repeated for credit)
Prerequisite:

This course provides an opportunity for students in the Applied Experimental Psychology (AEP) MA track to explore a range of study domains and research methodologies across the science of psychology. It is intended as an advanced survey course in which faculty members and students from the School of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences present brief seminars in their areas of research and on topics related to student's professional development.

EXP 6506 Advanced Cognitive Psychology

Students must take and and ; or an undergraduate degree in Psych before enrolling in this course. Students will develop a broad understanding of current research and theorizing in the various topics of memory and cognition, including attention, memory systems and processes, representation of knowledge, metamemory, language, problem solving, expertise, decision making, and creativity. Emphasis will be placed on current research and theory in human memory cognition. Students will develop an in-depth understanding of a selected topic in cognition and will write a literature review paper discussing current research and theory in this topic.
