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.
Members of the BPS Cognitive Psychology Section comprise psychologists in industry, the health service, government departments, and colleges and universities.
Their interests cover most aspects of cognitive psychology and related areas.
Our members receive reduced registration fees at conferences and special workshops organised by the Section, including an annual conference.
Symposia at our recent annual conferences have included face processing, working memory, and problem solving.
