Psychology: Memory and Cognition

This second free course continues the introduction to Psychology. This free learning course approaches the topic from a ‘cognitive’ angle. This perspective likens the mind to an information-processing computer and uses the computer metaphor to examine complex human functions such as visual perception and memory. This online course is suitable for revising, exam preparation, and for those who often wondered how humans engage in complex mental functions!

  • John Jonathan
    John Jonathan Belgium The course on Memory and Cognition has really help me to gain a great insight between connections and network of the brain and the eyes. It helps me to understand the importance of vision and how the brain helps us to make sense from the photons that enters the eyes through the lens. And how image is form and how we make sense out of this images in our every day life. How we group together elements that are similar, how image could be altered due to position, angle and distance. And how to maintain size constancy, how the use of drugs like alcohol can affect the brain and alter images, speech and judgment, from the I could understand why heavy intake of alcohol can lead to car accident while driving after heavy drinking. Also how age could affect our vision and some side effect and diseases that can also affect visibility or creating a blurred vision or lost of sight. The semantic network also help me understand how information are transferred to the long term memory. I would like to say thanks to Alison's professors who has prepared a course like this enabling people get a better education and understand of how the human relate to his world. 2016-10-07 15:10:00

    prisca baidoo Ghana The Psychology : Memory and Cognition Course consists of these modules; Visual Perception, Visual Illusions, Enhancing Retrieval, and Memory, Memory, Sensory, Short-term and Long term Memory, Theories on Forgetting. The various topics outlined in this module to me is the most interesting because it has to do with vision and memory. Rightly defining the mechanism of both vision and the way the brain works with regards to memory. 2016-09-02 13:09:16

    Karen Philpott United Kingdom It is very interesting if a little complex in it's written form. I would like to say though (as a dementia friends champion) that the word sufferer should be replaced with 'those living with dementia' we are trying to remove some of the stigma and negative wording around dementia so people feel they can talk about it and realise that actually, with the right support, people can live well with rather than suffer with dementia. 2016-07-21 23:07:18
