PSYCH 2231 - WIM: Introduction to Biopsychology

Fall. 2 credits. Student option grading.

Permission of instructor required.

T. DeVoogd.

The Writing in the Majors (WIM) section of PSYCH 2230  is an alternative to the regular course format that focuses less on formal evaluations such as prelims and final exams, and more on group discussion, thinking critically about psychological research, and writing coherently about scientific readings. This section is meant to build off of lectures and readings from the main course in order to provide students with an opportunity to join in a conversation about research in biopsychology rather than solely focusing on developing an understanding of the current body of research. Just as in the regular course format, you’ll be expected to learn about the major concepts and ideas in biopsychology and neuroscience. However, you’ll also learn how to read scientific material critically and effectively; how to coherently express your own scientific ideas clearly and concisely; and how to develop a scientific review paper that addresses a research question that is of interest to you.
