Psychologists conduct experiments to study our perceptions, decisions, prejudices, motivations, friendships and memory. But how do the brain and the body affect these processes? Where in the brain do they occur? And how are they represented? Psychologists and cognitive neuroscientists aim to map how brain and behaviour are related. This contemporary area of psychology investigates areas ranging from vision, hearing and touch to the mechanisms underlying language, action, attention, emotion and social processes. Our Centre for Brain Science allows you to discover the neurophysiological processes that take place in our bodies and brains. We give you the freedom and facilities to study and experiment, explore and research the human mind. You cover core areas in psychology and cognitive neuroscience including:
- Brain and behaviour
- Methods in cognitive neuroscience
- Applied psychology
- Language, memory and perception
- Developmental psychology
Many of our courses offer a choice of optional modules to tailor your learning experience. More information about these can be found on the University of Essex website.
