Are you a people watcher? Do you read newspapers and wonder why people do the things they do? Do you sometimes wonder why you are the way you are? If so, psychology would undoubtedly interest you as this subject is all about understanding mind and behaviour.

We explore the brain and some of the cognitive abilities it supports like memory, learning, attention, perception and consciousness. We examine human development – both in terms of growing up and growing old – and discuss the manner in which the behaviour of others affects our own thoughts and behaviour.

The fact of the matter is that humans routinely do amazing things without appreciating how interesting they are. However, we are also routinely influenced by people and events without always being aware of those influences.
