Welcome. On this page you can find a collection of essays, written for my Master’s in Psychology. You can scroll down to see an intro for each one, or jump straight to your favourite by clicking the links below:
- The social brain of a teenager: “In what ways does social cognition change during adolescence?”
- The mystery of sleep: “What role might sleep play in supporting memory function?”
- The influence of other people: “In what ways can the presence of other people affect an individual’s cognition and perception?”
- The belief that others intend to harm us: “Describe the evidence supporting the cognitive model of persecutory paranoia.”
You’ll also find a critique of an ethics application. It should give you an example of the sorts of things we need to think about when conducting psychological research.
