This 7-DVD set highlights developments in the field of psychology, offering an overview of classic and current theories of human behavior. Leading researchers, practitioners, and theorists probe the mysteries of the mind and body. This introductory course in psychology features demonstrations, classic experiments and simulations, current research, documentary footage, and computer animation. The Developing Child (program 5) introduces examples of cognitive, perceptual, and behavioral development in children. Viewers will explore the roles of heredity and environment in child development, and children's incremental understanding of such phenomena as object permanence, symbolic reasoning, and perception of visual depth. Language Development (program 6) outlines the development of language in children. It highlights linguist Noam Chomsky's theories about the human brain's predisposition to understand language, and then profiles three scientists working on aspects of psycholinguistics. Sensation and Perception (program 7) unravels the complex process of how we see. Viewers will learn about visual illusions and what causes them, the biology of perception, the visual pathway, and how the human brain processes information during perception. Learning (program 8) discusses the basic principles of how we learn; classical, instrumental, and operant conditioning; and the role that stimuli and consequences play in learned behavior and habits. Viewers will explore how renowned researchers Ivan Pavlov, B.F. Skinner, Edward Thorndike, and John B. Watson contributed to what we know about human and animal learning.
