The purpose of labs is to provide hands-on experience with some aspects of the material covered in the lectures. Also, labs aim to teach transferrable skills that are useful beyond specific subjects such as using literature databases or making presentations.
Psychology 2B labs take place on Mondays (2pm to 4pm) and Wednesdays (3pm to 5pm) (Lower Concourse, 7 George Square). During the period when labs take place, each student is expected to attend one lab in every two weeks (i.e., four labs in total). For the time and location of your lab see Learn.
Labs are associated with tasks on which students are assessed. These assessments contribute towards the final course mark.
Memory and Amnesia: Learning Lab
In this Lab, students will fact-check an exam revision tips leaflet, and will work on creating a better, evidence-based study advice for their peers.
Cognitive neuroscience: Making your brain learn about your brain
In this lab, students will have a hands on opportunity to learn about brain structure and function through the use of brain injury case studies.
Language: Explaining language-related phenomena to lay people
In this lab, students will work in groups and present the content of an academic paper to avarious possible audences.
The labs will prepare you for the presentation assessment. You will work in small groups to develop an explanation of perceptual illusions.
