Undergraduate Courses Taught by Dr. Kable:
Psych 160-001: Personality

This course provides an introduction to the psychology of personality and individual differences. Many psychology courses focus on the mind or the brain. In contrast to the approach of studying people in general, this course will focus on the question, “How are individuals different from each other?” This is a question that you probably have lots of experience with – one of the first things people often do when meeting someone new is to assess their personality. This course will discuss the methods psychologists have used to assess individual differences and how their answers compare to our common-sense views. The course will particularly highlight research that takes a multidimensional approach to individual differences and attempts to integrate across the biological, cognitive, and social-cultural influences on personality. Prerequisite: Psychology 001.
PSYC 473-301: Neuroeconomics

This seminar will review recent research that combines psychological, economic, and neuroscientific approaches to study human and animal decision-making. The course will focus on our current state of knowledge regarding the neuroscience of decision-making, and how evidence concerning the neural processes associated with choices might be used to constrain or advance economic and psychological theories of decision-making. Topics covered will include decisions involving risk and uncertainty, decisions that involve learning from experience, decisions in strategic interactions and games, and social preferences. Prerequisite: Psychology 149, 153, or 165, or permission of the instructor.
