New Course in Psychology, Co-Taught with Reykjavik University Students!

Doctors Bruce Thompson and Carol Nemeroff (LAC) are offering a cross-listed course that you all can take THIS SEMESTER as a 300-Level, psychology elective. The course is:  PSY399 - Human Factors in Regulatory Compliance and Social Policy.  No, it's not the most thrilling title, but it's a course that explores everything from Cognition and Neuroscience, to philosophy and law. A  course of study that relates to how we humans react to being controlled, legally manipulated...but also socialized to be cooperative, pro-social and responsible citizens.  Dr. Nemeroff and Dr.Thompson have collaborated with Reykjavik University to bring this course to their Psychology and Business students as well, who will be able to interact online with USM students on a set of fascinating international issues relating to research, business commerce, education, and other areas.
