Fundamental of Psychological Research I [82:250]

Psychology as a discipline is faced with a herculean task: understanding how a mind works. Unfortunately, minds are not directly observable, and are potentially non-physical. How can we come to understand and know something that cannot be observed? For over millennia, philosophers, scientists, doctors, and laymen have wrestled with this question, and have developed some ingenious solutions to it. The primary goal of this course is to give you the opportunity to join in the fun. The course offers a broad overview of  various research methods studying the human mind. A special emphasis is placed on expressing our observations using a formal language (i.e. statistics).
