In the Fall 2013, the Department launches a laboratory component to PSYC1000. Open to 12 students, this section examines and applies the methods and techniques of scientific inquiry as they are used by Psychologists. It also provides hands-on experiences that reinforce psychological theories. The lab will include activities in neuroanatomy, sensory processes, learning and memory, hypothesis development and testing, and scientific writing. Students will conduct an experiment, analyze the data and write a research styled manuscript. The objective is to gain a deeper understanding of major psychological theories and the empirical nature of psychological science.
