PSY301 Cognitive and Perceptual Psychology

This course provides an overview of human perception and cognition. The study of perceptual psychology aims to understand how information is acquired from the environment through sensory organs. The study of cognitive psychology looks at the storage, manipulation, and retrieval of information. Students will conduct core perceptual and cognitive experiments and analyse and interpret the findings of the research. We recommend students purchase the ebook bundle of Goldstein's Cognitive Psychology: Connecting Mind, Research, and Everyday Experience 5th Edition (WITH MindTap + CogLab).
