Cognitive Psychology

15 Credits

The Cognitive Psychology course investigates this major sub-discipline in the field of psychology. 

Cognitive Psychology and Neuroscience is the most modern branch of brain science, looking not only at building psychological theories but rewiring the way we see the world and developing new ideas and concepts that help us to understand our own brains. Topics include perception, attention, memory, decision-making, consciousness and emotion.

Teaching includes ten 90-minute lectures and two 45-minute tutorials per student. These lectures are designed to capture students’ interest and excite their curiosity and allow interactivity and a short time of discussion and questioning, to engage students in the complex discussions surrounding psychology, throughout or at the end of each lecture, as appropriate.
