Welcome to the Cognitive Psychology Section!

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. The Section's activities include an Annual Conference, usually held in September, one or more specialist events in the year and symposia at the main Society Conference in March/April.
