Introduction to Psychology (PSYC 110). This lecture by Professor Paul Bloom finishes the discussion of language by briefly reviewing two additional topics: communication systems in non-human primates and other animals, and the relationship between language and thought.

The majority of this lecture is then spent on introducing students to major theories and discoveries in the fields of perception, attention and memory. Topics include why we see certain visual illusions, why we don't always see everything we think we see, and the relationship between different types of memory.

Complete course materials are available at the Open Yale Courses website.

This course was recorded in Spring 2007.
