About this Unit
Building on concepts and theories introduced in 'Cognitive Processes', methods, theories and practical approaches are applied to the analysis of behaviour, tasks and the solving of problems in workplace, operational and educational settings. Principles from cognitive psychology and learning are applied to the analysis, evaluation, and improvement of software, product and instructional design. Human perception, memory, decision-making and cognitive workload are examined in the context of complex and dynamic environments such as human-machine interaction, ageing populations, expert domains such as music, aviation, sport, and forensic psychology.
