cognitive psychology

Cognitive psychology is a branch of psychology that studies how people think and learn. It is all about trying to understand how our brains work and how they influence our behaviour. Our brains take in information from the world around us and use it to make decisions. Researchers in cognitive psychology are interested in understanding how our brains process information to make the decisions that we make. They also look at how memories are stored, how we remember things, and how we use the information that we have.
