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.
Membership of the Cognitive Psychology Section is only open to members of the British Psychological Society.
If you are not a member you can join the Section at the same time as applying for membership of the society.
