I've taken a class in psycholinguistics and we touched on it a bit more in a few other classes.

I think the term for cognitive ergonomics now is "human user interface design" or "human computer interface design" depending on who you talk to.

From what I understand there's still a lot of Skinner-style behaviorism in the world of Psych, just not so much in Ling. I certainly never ran into it but I never took any pure psych courses.

I did almost 3 years of "pure" psych at Dalhousie and encounted almost zero behaviourism; one prof (who works on language acquisition in large birds) is a holdout.
Maybe that's why people come to Dal from all over the world?
