This topic is designed to provide students with an overview of some fundamental learning principles, basic cognitive processes and their physiological bases. Theoretical issues of classical and operant conditioning, short-term and long-term memory, attention and imagery, spatial learning and human factors, and the underlying physiological processes, are complemented with clinical, developmental and ergonomic applications. Practical work elaborates key concepts addressed in the program, and gives students the opportunity to acquire experience with experimental research.
This topic is designed to help you develop the ability to critically evaluate key theories, methods, and findings in research areas such as cognitive neuroscience, perception, attention, learning, memory, concepts and knowledge, and judgements and decision making. Team-based tutorials enable you to apply your learning to develop research proposals that generate new knowledge or applications in cognition and learning.
