Curriculum

Internally to the scientific sector "General Psychology" (M-PSI/01), the main research fields are (according to a phenomenological-experimental perspective): Psychophysics, Perception of space, Visuo-spatial problem-solving, Sensory and emotional analysis and construction of tools for measuring psychological variables. Specifically, the research skills concern:
1) Analysis and formalization of the laws of connection existing between the world of defined and measurable physical stimuli, the world of the main psychological sensations (sight, smell, taste, touch, hearing) and emotions.
2) Understanding of the relationships that people have with the environment in the surrounding space (esteroceptive processes) and with their body dimensions (enteroceptive processes).
3) Structuring of tests / questionnaires for the quantification of psychological variables in order to improve the diagnostic analysis of the patient.

Experimental Psychology Experimental psychology refers to work done by those who apply experimental methods to psychological study and the processes that underlie it. Experimental psychologists employ human participants and animal subjects to study a great many topics, including (among others) sensation & perception, memory, cognition, learning, motivation, emotion; developmental processes, social psychology, and the neural substrates of all of these.

Fundamental measurement for Psychology (La Misurazione fondamentale in Psicologia) A new measurement in psychology has emerged from a confluence of scientific and social forces which are producing a revolution in social science methodology. We begin by reviewing how the semiotics of C.S.Peirce revise and enrich our interpretation of S.S. Stevens' four "kinds of measurement" into a creative dynamic for the evolution of one kind of useful measurement. Then we recall two turning points in social history which remind us of the antiquity and moral force of our need for stable measures. Next we review the psychometric and mathematical histories of measurement, show how the obstacles to inference shape our measurement practice and summarize Georg Rasch's contributions. This brings us to some applications of the "new" measurement models produced by Rasch's work. Finally we review some mistakes that the history of measurement can teach us to stop making.
