It will tackle both theoretical and methodological implications that lie within the field of cognitive psychology, by critically analysing cognitive mechanisms/processes that develop from birth into early and middle childhood. The module will be research-driven, providing space and opportunities for a deep understanding of theory and research that underpin major areas of cognitive development, such as perception, memory, attention, reasoning, executive functions and make key conceptual links with other sub-fields, such as neurocognition.
