Cognitive psychology

How does memory work? How do we understand language? How do we think? These are just some of the questions related to everyday experience youll address on this course. Beginning with core topics - perception and attention; categorisation and language; and memory, thinking and reasoning - youll then explore wider issues, such as emotion and consciousness, topics that have presented a challenge to the cognitive approach. Throughout, youll be asked to examine theories, evidence and arguments as well as the methods of cognitive psychology, including neuropsychology and neuroimaging. Using a computer, youll also be guided through techniques of data analysis and experimentation, and will engage in your own project work.
