Social Cognition

PSYCHOLOGICAL & BRAIN SCIENCES 5991

This seminar will focus on current theory and methods in social cognition, broadly defined. The goal of this course, much like the goal of research in social cognition is twofold: 1) to explore the cognitive underpinnings of social psychological phenomena, including person perception, stereotyping, attribution, emotion, automaticity, and self-construction, assessment, and regulation; and 2) to explore the social and contextualized nature of cognitive processes and content, including memory, judgment, and perception. Although the course draws primarily on readings from the social psychological literature, topics discussed are relevant to a variety of domains, including cognitive and clinical psychology.
