CSD 210 - Communication and the Mind


This course will provide a basic overview of our knowledge of language and what it can tell us about the nature of the mind, and vice versa. It will explore relevant theories of cognitive and language development. Students will view pre-recorded lectures about the structure of sentences (syntax), words (morphology), and sound shape (phonetics, phonology), and how these are typically acquired, mentally represented, and processed by humans. Lectures will cover the relationships between early social interactions, social cognition (theory of mind), language, and social competence (“inter-subjectivity model” of language and executive functioning). Lectures will also include discussion of communication disorders and differences, and the social cognitive effects of communication disorders on children and adults at a national and global scale. This course will include readings, video analyses of typical and clinical populations, online demonstration activities, a final paper, and on-line discussion board activities and reflections.
