PSYC 002H: Honors Experimental Psychophysiology

Course Description

Honors Experimental Psychophysiology uses the pedagogical methods common to all Honors courses: interdisciplinary, writing- intensive, collaborative, and experiential instruction. This course surveys various psychological research methods with an emphasis on research design, experimental procedures, descriptive methods, instrumentation, and the collection, analysis, interpretation, and reporting of research data. Research design and methodology are examined through a review of research from a variety of the sub-disciplines in psychology. In the laboratory students have the opportunity to conduct experimental and non-experimental research in a variety of areas. Data collected from research conducted during laboratory sessions are analyzed with statistical software. In addition, a computerized psychophysiology laboratory is used to introduce students to experiments in which one variable is physiological and the primary focus and theoretical context is behavioral.
