COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY

Cognitive psychologists are research oriented and study mental processes such as perception, object recognition, attention, short and long-term memory, language, mental imagery and thinking. They believe that mental processes can be examined scientifically through the conduct of experiments. They study how people perceive objects and events, how they can store past events in memory, how they transform and manipulate knowledge by thinking, and how they analyze their experience to emerge with new and abstract notions. Cognitive psychologists also study reasoning, judgment, and decision making. These psychologists are usually found in academic settings, research laboratories, or in technical and information-processing agencies.
