It looks at the physiological, evolutionary, and developmental mechanisms of behavior and experience. It relates the was the body and brain function to issues in psychology.
During the semester we covered:
The nervous system,
The brain anatomy and development,
Sensory motor systems,
The brain and memory, learning, language, attention and executive control.
Cognitive Psychology
It looks at the internal processes involved in making sense of the environment, and deciding what action might be most appropriate in different situations. Through observation of behavior during performance on cognitive tasks we can understand human cognition.
During the semester we covered:
Learning and Memory
Problem solving, Reasoning and Thinking
