What do your dreams mean? Do men and women differ in the nature and intensity of their sexual desires? Can apes learn sign language? Why can’t we tickle ourselves? This course tries to answer these questions and many others, providing a comprehensive overview of the scientific study of thought and behavior. It explores topics such as perception, communication, learning, memory, decision-making, religion, persuasion, love, lust, hunger, art, fiction, and dreams.
We will look at how these aspects of the mind develop in children, how they differ across people, how they are wired-up in the brain, and how they break down due to illness and injury.

What is Edcamp Utah?
Edcamp Utah is a type of “unconference” designed specifically for teachers and their needs.
Edcamp Utah is designed to provide participant-driven professional development for K-12 educators. This is a free participant-driven conference with a primary focus on education and technology.
Built on principles of connected and participatory learning, Edcamp Utah strives to bring teachers together to talk about the things that matter most to them: their interests, passions, and questions. Teachers who attend Edcamp Utah can choose to lead sessions on those things that matter, with an expectation that the people in the room will work together to build understanding by sharing their own knowledge and questions.
Edcamp Utah will be:
non-commercial and conducted with a vendor-free presence
hosted by UCET in partnership with local school districts
made up of sessions that are determined on the day of the event
an event where anyone who attends can be a presenter – reliant on the “law of two feet” that encourages participants to find a session that meets their needs.
Registration opens August 15. Info at www.UCET.org. Limited to 200 registrants.
