In a computer-controlled laboratory students will repeat several classic experiments on how people process information,
and will analyze and report on their findings. Topics include:

Students will learn about the interpretation of error, reaction-time, and interresponse-time data,
will make use of signal-detection theory and the additive-factor method to make inferences about underlying processes,
and will consider various models of mental operations, including serial, parallel, and hierarchical models.
