Have you ever wondered about the notion of identity? Or how and why our personalities develop? These are just some of the questions covered by the field of developmental psychology.
If you have ever wondered what makes you, “you”, or about the relationship between the “mind” and the brain, or what consciousness is, or how visual illusions fool our mind, then you may be interested in the study of experimental psychology.
The course is designed to give students a basic overview of the study of experimental psychology at university, looking at the major areas that constitute an experimental psychology degree. The fascinating case studies looked at in this course – such as the mysterious case of Phineas Gage, the American railway worker who survived an iron bar passing through his brain – will provide great material to help you in your application or simply provide an insight into a fascinating area of study.
