PSYC 235 Abnormal and Traumatic Memory
The course covers human memory when it malfunctions. Problems described range from the amnesias (loss of long-term memory and the causes and outcomes of this condition), to loss of specific semantic memory (such as memory for particular concepts), and other distortions of normal memory function. Also covered are the effects of stress and shock on memory, and pathological outcomes that can (but do not normally) occur with age. (LA)
