Introduction to Cognitive Psychology: An Experimental Science

Philip Quinlan, University of York

Learn how to conduct, analyse and understand cognitive psychology experiments

Cognitive psychology is the scientific study of internal mental processes. On this course, you will be introduced to two key areas of cognitive psychology: reasoning and thinking and mental imagery.

You will explore cognitive psychology as an experimental science, as you consider the psychology of thinking and reasoning and the psychology of imagination and thinking visually. You will learn how to run an experiment, how to collect data, and understand the science behind memory and behaviour through experiments. You will also explore the effectiveness of experiments for the study of the mind.

This course is designed for anyone with an interest in the workings of the mind and how to study this through experiments.

This course will be of particular interest to those looking to study Psychology at university, and those thinking of applying to study degree level Psychology at the University of York.
