Goals: The objective of this section of the core course is to introduce fundamental issues in cognitive psychology regarding how we recognize objects and pay attention. We will read and discuss papers that address critical issues on these topics. Students will be expected to email at least 3 questions or topics of discussion to the class email list prior to each class, and one person will be selected in advance to present the paper and distill the basic ideas for the class. This individual will also provide 2-3 lead-off questions for the whole class to discuss. Presentations and class participation will count for 70% of the grade while a take-home essay exam will count for the remaining 30%.
