Spotlight on: PSYCH 9B – Psychology Fundamentals

This week, UCI Open features Professor Mark Steyvers’ course, Psychology Fundamentals.

Why it’s important: The Psychology Fundamentals series of courses focuses on the biological bases of behavior, sensation, perception, cognition, development, personality, psychopathology, and social psychology. It provides knowledge needed for further study in a variety of disciplines including psychology, criminology, urban studies, and public health.

Associated research: Professor Steyvers’ research interests include higher order cognition, cognitive neuroscience, computational modeling, and collective intelligence (the “wisdom of crowds”), and Steyvers co-directs the Memory and Decision Laboratory (the MADLAB), which conducts research on higher order cognition.

Watch: View the PSYCH 9 series on the following YouTube playlists:
