Behavioral and Cognitive Psychology

Behavioural psychology, otherwise known as behaviourism, is based upon the idea that all behaviours are acquired through conditioning, via interaction with the environment. Cognitive psychology is the branch of psychology that focuses on the way people process information Cognitive psychology is the study of mental functions like learning, attention, memory, reasoning, conceptual development, language acquisition, perception and decision-making. The main focus of cognitive psychology is in researching the acquisition, processing and storing of information in the mind. Cognitive (meaning "knowing") psychologists attempt to create rules and explanations of human behaviour and eventually generalise them to everyone's behaviour.
