Psychology 140: The Psychology of Illusions

This course explores several domains of psychology through the lens of illusion. Beginning with illusions of perception, we will continue to others such as illusions of memory, mood, conscious will, cognitive development, and judgement. By investigating how our mind gets things wrong, we will discover ways in which our psychological processes normally work. A central theme that emerges through this integrative approach is that illusions are often side-effects of our remarkably adaptive mind.
