PSYC 194-01  The Origin of Consciousness
TR 03:00 pm-04:30 pm OLRI 370 Darcy Burgund
*First Year Course only* In the book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind psychologist Julian Jaynes argues that humans became self-conscious only about 3000 years ago, and before that operated as virtual automatons obeying hallucinated voices that they attributed to gods. Described as both “consummate genius” and “complete rubbish”, the book provides a vehicle for exploring the psychology of language, religion, decision-making, creativity, mental illness, and of course, consciousness. This course will discuss these topics while reading Jaynes’ book as well as supplemental texts from psychology, neuroscience, anthropology, and philosophy. The class will be writing intensive, and students will write (and re-write) commentaries; personal, analytic, and argumentative essays; and a research paper. No prior knowledge is required; however, a strong interest in psychology and/or the human mind will help. This course approved for social science general distribution credit.

PSYC 394-01  Memory
W 07:00 pm-10:00 pm OLRI 352 Katrina Schleisman
Memory is fundamental to our lives. It underlies our ability to share experiences and culture; it defines how we are unique. In this course we will explore various types of memory that have been identified through research into human and non-human animal behavior. We will explore questions such as: how can we have vivid, movie-like memories for events that never happened? We will see how this mis-match between experience and memory can be viewed both as a problem that can result in memory errors, and as a positive form of cognitive flexibility. How are memories stored and retrieved in the brain? We will discuss research that relates behavior to brain function, and gain a better understanding of how the structure of our nervous system enables key insights into how our memory systems work.

Prerequisites: PSYC 242: Cognitive Psychology OR PSYC 244: Cognitive Neuroscience OR PSYC 180: Brain, Mind and Behavior, OR instructor's approval.

PSYC 394-01  Moral Psychology
TR 01:20 pm-02:50 pm OLRI 300 Steve Guglielmo
This course will explore how and why we make moral judgments about people and their behavior. How are our moral judgments shaped by intuition, emotion, and reasoning? Which kinds of behaviors do we view as immoral? How do we balance our own self-interest with the interests of our broader group or community? What are the evolutionary and developmental origins of moral judgments? What are the moral implications of important policy decisions about capital punishment and the insanity defense? Could a robot have moral rights and responsibilities? In this course, we will examine these questions by considering theories and findings from social, developmental, evolutionary, and political psychology, as well as from

related fields like philosophy and artificial intelligence. Prerequisite: PSYC 201 or permission of instructor.

PSYC 394-02  Social Identity Development
TR 08:00 am-09:30 am OLRI 300 Cari Gillen-O'Neel
This course examines the development of social identities, with a special focus on gender and ethnic identity in the United States. Through empirical articles, class discussions, and several written assignments, we will address questions such as: When do children become aware that the social categories of gender and ethnicity exist? What do these group identities mean to children, and how do these identities change as children grow older? Do children understand the gender and ethnic inequalities and stereotypes that are present in current U.S. society? What effects do these social inequalities and stereotypes have on children’s self-concepts, friendships, and academic achievement? What role do parents, teachers, peers, and the media play in shaping children’s social identities? Counts as a UP3 course. Pre-requisites: PSYC 100, PSYC 201 (or MATH 155), and PSYC 250 (or permission of instructor).

MWF 02:20 pm-03:20 pm OLRI 300 Julia Manor

Connections and implications for emotional development and psychiatric disorders will be discussed. Prerequisites: PSYC/NEUR 180 and either MATH 155 or PSYC 201.
