COGS 219 - Research Methods in Cognitive Science

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)

In this course, students learn to apply the principal methodologies of cognitive science to a specific problem in the field, such as sentence processing or visual form perception. The methods are drawn from human neurophysiology, experimental cognitive psychology, computer modeling, linguistic and logical analysis, and other appropriate investigative tools, depending on the specific issue chosen for study. A major goal of the course is to give students hands-on experience with the use and coordination of research techniques and strategies characteristic of contemporary cognitive science. The course also plays a critical role in preparing students for the senior thesis.  It is therefore strongly encouraged that this course be completed by the junior year.  Janet Andrews, Josh de Leeuw.
