Welcome! This repository contains course materials for the Dartmouth undergraduate course Human Memory (PSYC 51.09). The syllabus may be found here. Feel free to follow along with the course materials (whether you are officially enrolled in the course or just visiting!), submit comments and suggestions, etc. If you are a course instructor, you may feel free to use these materials in your own courses (attribution is appreciated).
This course, and many of the course materials, were inspired by (and in some cases copied from!), similar content by Michael Kahana, Sean Polyn, and Per Sederberg. These materials have also been heavilty influenced by feedback from students who enrolled in prior offerings of this course.
While I strive for 100% accuracy in my courses, I recognize that I am very unlikely to achieve that goal. If you notice inaccuracies, inefficiencies, and/or if you have any other suggestions, feature requests, questions, comments, concerns, etc. pertaining to this course, I encourage you to open an issue and/or submit a pull request. This course is continually evolving as I attempt to maintain its currency and relevance in a rapidly developing field; your help, feedback, and contributions are much appreciated!
Start here! The materials for each module below are organized sequentially. Work your way from section to section (and from top to bottom within each section). The recorded lectures (in bold) typically cover preceding material (after the previous lecture, within the same module). Take notes on questions you have as you are reviewing the material, along with any comments, concerns, etc. that would like to bring them up for discussion during our synchronous class meetings. I'll leave time at the beginning of most classes to quickly recap the key ideas from the prior lecture, and for students to bring up discussion topics related to the readings and/or course materials.
