Why take Cognitive Psychology?
Cognitive psychology is the study of the inner workings of the mind and encompasses topics that influence everything you do, such as attention and memory. Understanding how your mind processes information can be beneficial in everyday life including things like how you study. It will also help you understand how others process information, influencing your understanding of their behavior. Some of these things will be confirmations of things you already “know”, others will challenge you to think differently about how you encounter and interact in your world.
