Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The aims of this course are to:

1. Introduce and deepen students’ understanding of quantitative theories of judgements, decision-making and cognitive psychology.

2. Encourage critical thinking (and discussions) about fundamental cognitive processes such as memory, categorisation, judgement and choice.

3. Promote awareness of the applications of cognitive psychology research and theory to real-life settings.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

This course will explore recent developments in theories of decision-making, judgements, behavioural economics and cognitive psychology. The students will critically examine theoretical models of judgement and decision-making, behavioural economics, categorisation and memory. The course will also cover recent developments in normative and descriptive theories of choice, as well as the impact of experience and expertise on categorisation and choice. Finally, it will introduce students to applications of judgement and decision making research in areas such as politics, sports, economics and health.
