Unit Description

Cognitive psychology focuses on the mental processes that underpin attention, perception, learning and memory. Some of the questions we ask include: How do we recognize speech, faces, or music? What are the structures and mechanisms of human memory? What processes underpin acquisition of language, and are the processes similar when we learn a second language? What processes are involved in reading? What factors affect attention and performance? Is creativity anything more than problem solving?
