This is a blog about cutting edge Health Psychology and how to apply it in practice. Our aim is to translate rigorous and peer-reviewed research to simple and clear blog posts. These posts can be easily translated into practice.
The School of Psychology at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) is a central hub of research in the area of Health Psychology. The aim of this blog is to give both students and colleagues a forum to disseminate information about their research and their thoughts on current issues in Health Psychology. To reach a broader audience, we encourage colleagues to translate their research into simple and clear blog posts.
The blog provides analyses of psychological studies that are relevant to everyday life. Topics include how memory works, self-control, methods for boosting creativity and the psychology of work (https://www.amazon.com/Jeremy-Dean/e/B005QJSITK).
The goal of the blog is to bring cognitive psychology to the community by sharing research findings in an accessible manner. Students in PS232 – Cognitive Psychology and research assistants in the Memory and Language Lab contribute to the site by writing about recent empirical findings in the fields of attention, memory, language, and other cognitive processes.
A secondary goal of the CogBlog is to highlight research that is relevant to all members of an active learning community.
