This course is a survey of empirical and theoretical approaches to the cognition of social objects and events -- that is, perception, memory, thought, and language concerning ourselves, other people, interpersonal behavior, and the situations in which social interaction takes place. Emphasis is placed on the integration of problems in social, personality, and clinical psychology with the concepts and principles employed in the study of nonsocial cognition.

The course is predicated on the assumption that social interaction is cognitively mediated that our interpersonal behaviors are determined by what we know (or believe) about ourselves, other people, the situations in which we encounter them, and the behavior that takes place in them. Topics to be covered include: impression formation (and impression-management), perception of nonverbal behavior; social categorization; person memory and autobiographical memory; causal attribution and other aspects of social judgment; the role of scripts in understanding and planning social behavior; the self as a knowledge structure; automaticity and implicit social cognition; social intelligence; social learning; development of social cognition and the theory of mind; cognitive-social neuropsychology; emotional and motivational effects on social cognition; self-fulfilling prophecies and other expectancy-confirmation effects; and the construction of social reality.
