Discussion: Areas of Interest and Practical Applications in Cognitive Psychology
Brainstorm some potential ideas for your final project. What areas of cognitive psychology interest you the most (attention, learning, memory, language or decision making)? What applied setting is of interest to you or important for your future career (education, law, mental health, or technology)? Also, consider some of the potential cognitive problems in your area that you think further research and study in cognitive processes may be able to help solve.
In your responses to your peers’ posts, offer additional perspectives on the potential problems they identified and additional challenges within applied fields. Also, consider how your own interests in cognitive psych relate to those of your peers.
