Lecture 3 September 17
Methodology
Ethics: before conducting an experiment, researchers must identify ethical
considerations. How much harm is likely, are people being compensated for
research, etc…
Some circumstances will activate certain genes (e.g. nature vs. nurture)
Thinking, even rational thinking, is always influenced by emotions. Therefore,
rational thinking does not really exist.
Our own perspective will always limit us.
Convergence amongst different perspectives.
Thinking in terms of multiple causes changes how we understand many things.
E.g. what is depression??
Trying to understand depression very quickly spins off into side stories.
Depression is ultimately anything that emerges from the simultaneous reactions
of all these systems.
This means that you can affect depression with a bunch of different tools.
Psychologists try to think in terms of multiple levels.
Science is not just about facts we can never get in direct contact with the
world. It is about hypotheses, observations, and conclusions.
Much of what we believe today will, in 50 years, seem largely irrelevant, maybe
even silly.
A single research study is not very meaningful. There are always flaws and holes
in any study. There are always methodological errors, and finally there is never
perfect data.
How do we know if anything is true?

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
