Concepts: The Stuff of Thought

Concepts: The Stuff of Thought
Concepts allow us to think--they organize and provide meaning to our perceptions, memories, knowledge, and social interactions. In this seminar we will employ a multidisciplinary approach to explore how concepts are represented psychologically and biologically, how they develop over time, and how they allow us to understand and interact with the physical and social world around us. While the majority of course material will come from cognitive psychology, topics will be taken from philosophy, neuroscience, computer science, developmental psychology, and social psychology. (PSYC 0105; open to junior and senior psychology and neuroscience majors only) 3 hrs. sem.
