This course introduces you to the major theories and concepts in cognitive psychology and provides you with an understanding of their interdependence and relationship to human behaviour and lived experience.
In this course, we’ll explore study cognition or “thinking”. That is, the acquisition, storage, transformation and use of knowledge by the mind and brain. Throughout the course, you will be introduced to the basic theoretical concepts, which you’ll be able to apply through adaptions of classic psychological experiments.
