Cognitive Psychology Section

Welcome to the Cognitive Psychology Section!

The Cognitive Psychology section of the British Psychological Society was formed in 1978 as a national forum for the discussion of research and issues of professional concern to cognitive psychologists. The Section's activities include an Annual Conference, usually held in September, one or more specialist events in the year and symposia at the main Society Conference in March/April.

About the Section

The BPS Cognitive Section is a national forum for discussion of research and matters of concern to cognitive psychologists. Our membership comprises psychologists in industry, the health service and government departments, in addition to all colleges and universities. Their interests cover most aspects of cognitive psychology and related areas. 

Membership gives you reduced registration fees at conferences and special workshops organised by the Section, including an annual conference. Recent activities have included conferences on reading and dyslexia, imagery, laterality, and student learning; and workshops on problem solving, hemisphericity, and mind and language.
