Cognitive psychologists, sometimes called brain scientists, study how the human brain works—how we think, remember and learn. They apply psychological science to understand how we perceive events and make decisions.
This booklet, A Collection of Neuroscience & Cognition Articles, features some of the most influential scholars and cutting-edge scientific researchers on topics that range from increasing cognitive reserves to an analysis of learning and recall.
In curating this selection of articles, APA’s scientific staff drew from half a dozen scholarly APA journals and publications that focus on the latest neuroscience and cognition research. APA’s Journals Program houses hundreds of academic papers in this field, and you can access them by visiting the journals area on our website at www.apa.org/pubs/journals and browsing by subject: Neuroscience & Cognition.
