Syllabus
Prerequisites: Basic notions in cognitive psychology and methodology. Basic English
Target skills and knowledge: The main purpose of this course is to provide Italian and foreign students with direct laboratory experience with various paradigms and phenomena related to human cognition. The course also aims to familiarize Italian students with the English lexicon related to experimental psychology.
Examination methods: The exam consists of 20 written multiple choice questions. In order to participate in the final exam, it is MANDATORY to book using UNIWEB. UNIWEB booking is also MANDATORY for the registration of the final mark.
Assessment criteria: The exam will test both general and specific knowledge covering all the notions that have been discussed during the lectures.
Course unit contents: We will start with methodological issues related to experimental psychology and work our way up from lower-level perceptual aspects of cognition, such as vision and object recognition, and then on to higher-level cognitive abilities. The phenomena that will be illustrated and discussed will concern, among others, visual illusions, the pop-out effect, the Simon effect, the Stroop effect, orienting of attention. Considerable effort will be made to keep theory and lab practice parallel. Basic methodological aspects underlying the different experimental paradigms will also be given strong emphasis.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lectures will be given in English. Students will be required to take an active part in psychology experiments. Participation and selection of experiments will be illustrated during the course. By participating in experiments, students can learn first hand how research in experimental psychology is done. In light of the nature of the course, students are strongly invited to attend to the lectures.
Additional notes about suggested reading: There is no textbook for this course. Material for the course (in English) will be made available on a lecture by lecture basis. Other readings (e.g., journal articles) may be added later.
