Cognitive Psychology is a fascinating area of psychology that is relevant to a range of problems in the modern world. For instance, how do mobile phones distract attention during driving? What factors influence our purchasing decisions? What are the effects of brain injury and ageing on cognition and behaviour? Cognitive psychologists use techniques from psychology and cognitive neuroscience to address these and other issues and can have careers in academic, military, and industry research or, with additional clinical training, work with patients suffering from cognitive limitations arising from brain injury.
