Cognitive Psychology 2-IKV-113

Basic info

Course Description

This course introduces the basics of human cognition, a field of study that covers theories and models of sensation, perception, attention, learning and memory. Cognition is the study of how we take in information about the world, make sense of it, store it for later use, and then (try to) retrieve it when we think it will come in handy. Biological approaches of cognition (i.e., cognitive neuroscience) will be pronounced during the lectures to facilitate the understanding of the fundamental cognitive mechanisms and processes.
