This module considers the cognitive functions and properties of the human mind. The material covered include the history of cognitive psychology, visual and multimodal perception, attentional processes, memory mechanisms, language and knowledge representation, problem-solving and expertise, and decision making and reasoning. The relationships and links between processes will be covered, as well as the implications of cognitive psychology research in the real life and other scientific fields (e.g., the dialogue between all cognitive sciences including linguistics and computer science will be embedded across the module; critical discussions about the impact of research in memory on eyewitness testimony will be prompted). Theoretical approaches, experimental paradigms and empirical studies in cognitive psychology will be discussed throughout.
