This course will introduce the learner to a key area in psychology: cognitive psychology. You will develop an understanding of cognitive psychology as an experimental science by running your own experiments and collecting your own data.

Through this experience, you will gain an appreciation of how we can use these methods to study the mind. We will look at the current thinking on two key areas of the cognitive psychology, ‘reasoning and thinking’, and ‘mental imagery’.
