Making Sense of the Environment

by Tarry Ahuja, PhD

Our approach to thinking about the world is influenced by a number of factors—our ability to form judgements, solve problems, and communicate, as well as our memories, thoughts, and knowledge. Each of these processes, despite being different, converge to create our understanding of our surroundings. Underlying our perception of reality are biological factors that heavily influence these processes. This course will cover topics such as attention, cognition, consciousness, memory formation and forgetting, and language, to provide a comprehensive overview of how we make sense of our environment.

Misogyny at it's finest, "nagging wife"
By Rosy F. on 26. June 2022 for Selective Attention – Attention (PSY)

Not a fan of misogyny, "nagging wife" isn't cute or professional. I wish i could have selectively not heard that. My eyes rolled so hard they almost evacuated my head.

Great Presentation
By Adewale K. on 26. November 2020 for Drug Addiction and the Reward Pathway of the Brain – Consciousness (PSY)

Clear and concise! It linked to my knowledge of addiction and reinforced my understanding. I particularly enjoyed the breakdown of addiction into physical and psychological dependence
