Concentration in Cognitive Science
Cognitive psychologists study human perception, thinking and memory. Cognitive psychologists are interested in questions such as how the mind represents reality, how people learn and how people understand and produce language. They also study reasoning, judgment and decision making. Because of their various skills in these areas, cognitive psychologists frequently collaborate with researchers in other areas of psychology. For example, they often collaborate with behavioral neuroscientists to understand the biological bases of perception and cognition.
