Your daily life depends on the ability to encode perceptual information around you (what`s in the fridge?) and create a model of the world in your head (need to buy milk) so you can retrieve information later when you need it (at the grocery store). How do your mind and brain support this fundamental but complex mental ability? In this course, you will learn how human memory works, based on important discoveries in cognitive psychology and recent advances in neuroscience. In this course, you will develop a deep understanding of the role of emotions in human psychology. You will learn theories of emotion, emotional regulation, expression and experience, the role of emotions in decision-making, and the relationship between emotion, cognition, and behavior. In this course, we will review key findings from cognitive development, cognitive psychology, and educational psychology that have implications for the development of the learning experience inside and outside the classroom. Psychology is the science that studies the structure and function of behavior in humans and animals.
