PSY372H5 • Human Memory: The World within your Mind

Description

Your everyday life hinges on the ability to encode perceptual information around you (what’s in the fridge?) and build a model of the world in your mind (need to buy milk) so that you can retrieve information later when you need it (at the grocery store). How does your mind and brain support this fundamental yet complex mental ability? In this course, you will learn how human memory works, drawing on key findings in cognitive psychology and recent advances in neuroscience.
