My approach is to tell a story of the science of the human mind and how it works. It is heavily theoretical, being based on philosophical inquiry into what it means to have evolved a conscious mind that tries to study itself. It relates the classic experiments that defined cognitive psychology, the most important theories in its various fields, and relates them all to the exciting new discoveries in brain imaging and cognitive neuroscience. It ends with applications of our field to special populations, such as the elderly and cognitively impaired, and applications including the merging of cognition and technology.
