Abstract

Every day our mind performs incredibly complex computations. It helps us to make sense out of sensory information, memorize different things, learn new concepts and categories, make decisions and creatively solve problems. All these topics are studied by cognitive psychology. The course is designed for students that already have basic knowledge in psychology and want to deepen their understanding of human cognition. Students will learn about the most influential theories and empirical studies of perception, attention, memory, learning, thinking, and consciousness. Seminar activities designed to develop critical thinking and communication competence, while group projects and home assignments promote the ability to apply knowledge to real-life problems.
