PSYCH 630 Advanced Analysis of Variance (0.50) LECCourse ID: 011138
The purpose of this course is to review contemporary perspectives on assumptions, procedures, and implications of analysis of variance. The course follows a model testing approach in which parameters for full and restricted models are predicted, and the adequacy of the models compared. Concepts such as power, effect size, error rates, contrasts, trend analyses, nonorthogonality, and so forth are discussed for higher-order, between and within -subjects designs. Special attention is given to analyses with multiple dependent variables (MANOVA). Finally, the application of randomization tests is presented as an alternative to theoretical distributions of test statistics, and the relationships of ANOVA and multiple regression techniques are also examined for simple and complex designs.

PSYCH 632 Multiple Regression (0.50) LECCourse ID: 002539

PSYCH 708 Reasoning about Ownership of Property (0.50) SEMCourse ID: 002724
Ownership of property is an important determinant of human behaviour. It is especially important in development because most of young children's social conflicts concern the possession and use of objects and these conflicts often involve reasoning about ownership. This class will examine the development of reasoning about ownership. Although the main approach will be developmental, a multidisciplinary approach will be taken. Readings will include papers from other areas of psychology and from philosophy, anthropology, law, and ethology.

PSYCH 709 Reasoning about Beliefs and Desires (0.50) SEMCourse ID: 012223
The ability to reason about what others think (believe) and want (desire) is crucial to social interaction, and when making sense of what we and others do. For example, in explaining why someone goes to a certain store we might say the she DESIRES to buy a hammer, and BELIEVES the store sells them. The ability to reason about beliefs, desires, and other mental states is often called "theory of mind." How this ability develops in childhood, has been greatly debated over the past 20 years, and remains mysterious (e.g. how can we learn that people have mental states when we cannot see mental states, but only infer them by observing people's behaviour). This course will mainly concern the development of theory of mind in childhood, and we will discuss the major empirical discoveries and theoretical positions in this area of investigation.

PSYCH 713 Theories of Pretence (0.50) LECCourse ID: 010597
From early in development (18 months, if not earlier) children engage in and recognize pretence. For example, children can pretend that a banana is a telephone, that their juice is in an empty cup, or that a clean teddybear is dirty. Although pretence is often taken for granted, and perhaps considered childish, it is mysterious: How do children pretend, and purposely represent the world as different than it really is? And how are children able to recognize what others pretend? Are children behaviourists about pretend play? Or does successful pretence signal that your children engage in mental state reasoning ('theory of mind')? Theories of children's (and adults') pretence have sought to provide answers to the questions. These theories are still actively debated, and are the main topic of this course. Relevant experimental work will also be discussed.

What is it that people really want?," examining several major theories that have suggested different answers to those questions. We will also examine major theories of goal structure and the dynamics of goal pursuit. We'll use this foundation to think broadly about what social psychological research has to say about how people manage (and mismanage) life's opportunities and challenges, especially how individuals respond to success and failure, persist in the face of challenge, and resist temptation.

In groups, students will then devise changes to the experimental designs as presented with an eye to improving the study. These 'brainstorming' sessions will then be shared with the rest of the class. The aims of the course are threefold: first, to expose students to the dominant theories of attention, second, to expose students to the pros and cons of a wide variety of neuroimaging techniques and third to develop their skills in experimental design within the constraints of those techniques.

In this course we will review the history, principles and methods used by neuropsychologists to understand perception, attention, memory, language, and consciousness. Disorders of perception and vision such as agnosias, of attention such as neglect, of language such as apshasias and dyslexias, of memory as in dementias, and amnesia, and of higher-order functions as in callosal split brain patients will be considered. We will also examine the relationship between findings from case studies and neuroimaging of cognitive functions.

This seminar offers a multidisciplinary approach to the study of face perception. We will cover major aspects of face processing including the perception and recognition of identity, emotions and gaze direction, their neural bases and their links to social cognition and theory of mind.
