MAJOR SUBJECTS

Biological Psychology-lecture (BIOLPSY)
3 units
Prerequisite : Zoology 1-lecture, Zoology 1-laboratory
Prerequisite to : Sensation and Perception

The course is designed to familiarize the students with the biological approach in the study of behavior. Biopsychology combines an interest in behavior and the machinery that makes behavior possible such as the brain, muscles, glands, and other organs. The course will introduce the students to the five divisions of Biopsychology, namely: Physiological Psychology, Psychophysiology, Neuropsychology, Comparative Psychology, and Psychopharmacology; and the different research methodologies used in each field of study.

Biological Psychology-laboratory (LBYPSYB)
2 units
Prerequisite : Zoology 1-lecture, Zoology 1-laboratory
Prerequisite to : Sensation and Perception

A combination of lectures, film-showing, group-discussions and laboratory exercises will be used as teaching methods: Six hours per week of laboratory work will be conducted in the Psychology Laboratory where students will perform human brain dissection and animal and human experiments that illustrate the basic principles of Biopsychology.

Developmental Psychology (DEVPSYC)
3 units
Prerequisite : Introduction to Psychology

The course involves a critical study of the concepts and theories of development; and the analysis of emotional, mental, physical and social development from birth to old age. The course will utilize the lifespan approach giving equal emphasis to early and adolescent development, and adult and aging development. Lectures and exercises will provide foundations for a better understanding of developmental needs and tasks at each stage in life, the differential effects of psychological and environmental factors in development, and psychological needs in coping with life transitions.

Experimental Psychology- lecture (EXPSYCH)
3 units
Prerequisite : Psychological Statistics 2
Prerequisite to : Sensation and Perception, Psychological Measurement 2

This lecture course designed to introduce the students to the experimental approach to research in psychology. Lectures and discussions on the principles, concepts, and procedures used in experimentation in psychology will be conducted. Both the historical development of the experimental tradition and the current experimental methodology practices will be examined. Because experimentation has been extensively utilized in cognitive and social psychology, emphases will be placed on classical and recent experiments in these fields. The contribution of these experiments to the development of cognitive and social theories will be discussed.

Experimental Psychology- laboratory (LBYPSMX)
2 units
Prerequisite : Psychological Statistics 2
Prerequisite to : Sensation and Perception, Psychological Measurement 2

This laboratory course is designed to supplement learning in the lecture. It allows the students to apply the principles, concepts, and procedures of experimentation in a series of hands-on exercises corresponding to the various stages of experimentation. The student will be guided in the design, implementation, analysis and write up of experiments in cognitive and social psychology.

Psychology of Sensation and Perception (SENSPER)
3 units
Prerequisite : Experimental Psychology, Biological Psychology

This course will familiarize the students with the psychological principles and processes involved in human sensation and perception, and a basic understanding of the mechanisms that make these possible. Lectures and exercises will include the anatomy and physiology of the different mechanisms of human sensation, the principles and processes involved in human perception such as integrating and recognizing complex patterns of sensations, and the behavioral manifestations of disturbances in these mechanisms and processes.
