FEATURED COURSEWORK

HON-H 241

Heuristics and COGNITIVE biases

College: Hutton Honors College

Department: Cognitive Science

Term: Fall 2020

CLASS DESCRIPTION: Our brains are extremely powerful. Humans are forced to take in an extreme number of inputs at one time, by the very nature that our world moves so fast. It's astonishing how fast our brains work; however, it has its drawbacks. This class taught about the dark side of our brain's quick, effortless movements called "heuristics."

MY WORK: I took this class because it allowed me to explore my interest in social media and journalism in the context of cognitive science. I presented my term paper at the Hutton Honors College's research symposium in April 2021, and it is in the works to be published.
