EXP-Experimental Psychology

EXP 3082 Experimental Psychology . . . . . 3(F,S)
Prerequisite: PSY 2012, STA 2023.
Corequisite: EXP 3082L.
Scientific method and experimental techniques in psychology. Fundamental assumptions and principles of scientific observation and research design are discussed. Students learn a number of techniques specific to psychological research. Relevant ethical issues are addressed. Students will learn to interpret and evaluate research and to communicate research findings.

EXP 3082L Experimental Psychology Lab . . . . . 3(F,S)
Prerequisites; PSY 2012, STA 2023.
Corequisite: EXP 3082.
Scientific method and experimental techniques in psychology. Students will conduct a series of exercises and laboratory experiments, perform and interpret statistical analysis of data collected, and report experimental findings in standard technical format. (Gordon Rule Course: Wrtg)

EXP 4250 Human Factors Psychology . . . . . 3(CALL DEPT)
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 EXP 5256; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

EXP 4404 Psychology of Learning . . . . . 3(F,S,SS)
Prerequisite: PSY 2012.
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 4507L Laboratory in Memory and Cognition . . . . . 1(F)
Prerequisite: STA 2023, EXP 3082, EXP 3082L.
Pre/Corequisite: EXP 4404.
Students will learn about the research methods used to investigate topics in memory and cognition. Students will conduct experiments, perform statistical analysis appropriate for the data generated, and prepare brief reports of results using APA style. Students will complete a final project in which they design and conduct an experiment in the area of memory and cognition, analyze the data, and prepare an APA style research report.

EXP 5208 Sensation and Perception . . . . . 3(SS)
Phenomena, theories, mechanisms and research techniques with emphasis on the visual and auditory systems.

EXP 5256 Human Factors Psychology . . . . . 3(CALL DEPT)

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 EXP 4250; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

EXP 6506 Advanced Cognitive Psychology . . . . . 3(S)
Prerequisite: EXP 3082 and EXP 4404.
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.
