Lecture 7 - Conscious of the Present; Conscious of the Past: Language (cont.); Vision and Memory

This video was recorded at YALE PSYC 110 - Introduction to Psychology with Professor Paul Bloom. This lecture 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.
