PGC Psychology Talk
The talk by Dr Stevenson was very interesting and informative, giving an insight into psychology.
For those of us who had very little prior knowledge, she covered the basic information on the subject such as required prior education, possible career paths and why the subject is so important to study. She emphasised how we rely on our brains to perceive reality and how this can be tricked leading to things like false memory.
She then discussed how important these concepts are to fields such as advertising and law, as it helps one manipulate thought and choices, and understanding how to do so is a key skill. This talk was very informative and helped many of us understand the basic concepts of the subject.
