PSY455H1: Psychological Research Now and Then


This course delves into some of the most influential experiments across psychology subfields by discussing how they were conceived, designed, and conducted. Students will learn how these classic findings shaped theory, how to reinterpret them with the benefit of the current knowledge in the field, as well as how and if their experimental designs can be modified to meet current scientific standards and address still open questions. Students will leave this course equipped to be both critical consumers and producers of scientific research. This course will combine lectures with student presentations.
