We continue to study Cognitive Psychology. In the fall semester of 2015-2016 you will be studying the following processes: Memory and Thinking. These two main sections are divided into six topics. In the Memory section, we will be discussing short-term and long-term memories, the organization of associative semantic memory, principles of learning and the causes and mechanisms of forgetting and false memories. In the Thinking section, we will be talking about problem solving, logical and probabilistic reasoning, and decision making.

Your in-class work will include 10 lectures and 10 seminars given in the 1st and the 2nd modules.
