PSY 2120-090: Memory & Cognition in Everyday Life

Ever wonder how you are able to remember important events or names of family and friends (or why you are so bad at it)? Or what you can do to improve your memory? We have an extraordinary array of mental abilities that allow us to learn, remember and sometimes forget new things that we encounter in everyday life. This course is designed to investigate these abilities, how they operate in everyday life, and why they sometimes don't work. To better illustrate how memory and cognition operate in everyday life, the course includes vivid demonstrations and examples of those abilities.  At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to define several complex aspects of cognition and memory (e.g., What is attention?  What is forgetting?  What is false memory?) and will understand the fundamental relationship between the brain and these behaviors. This course is taught each Spring semester by Dr. Kristina Rand.
