Teaching

I normally teach Statistics, Sensation and Perception, Human Cognition and Memory, Research Methods, and Applied Cognitive Science.
In addition, I supervise students with some background in sensation and perception for honours thesis projects, practicum and special projects.

Course Descriptions and Prerequisites



PSYC*2390 Principles of Sensation and Perception F,W (2-2) [0.50]
The course objective is to consider the processes of sensory inputs and perception. Approaches ranging from psychophysiology
and cognitive psychology to physiology and anatomy will be used. In considering the psychology of sensation and perception,
some of the anatomical and physiological aspects of selected senses will be covered in detail and the roles of experience,
organization of inputs, and theories of perception are discussed. Topics to be emphasized will vary with the instructor, but may
include ontogenetic development, learning, and modification of inputs and their perception. Students will participate in
laboratory demonstrations and experiments. (Also offered through distance education format.)
Prerequisite(s): PSYC*1100

PSYC*3900 Psychology Research Internship F,W,S (0-6) [0.50]
This course provides an experiential learning opportunity through the active participation of the student in a faculty member's
ongoing research program. It is expected that students will develop a broader appreciation of the relationship between
knowledge, theory and research while acquiring basic skills in research methodologies and modes of inquiry. The course will
require involvement in both the practice and reporting of research. The student must consult the supervisory faculty member
before selecting or registering for the course.
Prerequisite(s): PSYC*1100, PSYC*1200, PSYC*2010 and at least 1.00 credits at the 2000 level of the psychology core
Restriction(s): Instructor consent required.

PSYC*6740 Research Seminar in Neuroscience and Applied Cognitive Science A U [0.50]
This course will expose graduate students to some of the major theories, issues and methodologies driving research in the broad field
of Neuroscience and Applied Cognitive Science. Students will learn to critically evaluate presentations by researchers in this field as
well as to communicate the results of their own research, in both a written and oral format. All first year master's students in NACS
are required to enroll in this course.

PSYC*6760 Research Seminar in Neuroscience and Applied Cognitive Science B U [0.00]
This course will expose graduate students to some of the major theories, issues and methodologies driving research in the broad field
of Neuroscience and Applied Cognitive Science. Students will learn to critically evaluate presentations by researchers in this field as
well as to communicate the results of their own research, in both a written and oral format. All second year master's and doctoral
students in NACS are required to enroll in this course each year of their graduate program.
