    I have suggested and briefly discussed a range of fabulous books in no particular order that are very useful for any teacher looking to engage with and learn more about cognitive psychology. For example, single-unit recording looks at the working of single neurons and is a [Page ]sensitive technique that examines electrical changes; an EEG uses electrodes attached to the scalp to detect small changes in electrical activity in the brain, while a PET scan can detect positrons emitted from radioactive water injected into the human body; and MRI measures radio waves that when excited by atoms produce magnetic changes detected by magnets — a computer then interprets these changes and produces 3-D images. For example, obligation schemata aid reasoning of a situation where you feel obliged to do something. I work closely with my students to help prepare them for exams and this book helped me gain insight as to what the most effective revision methods are and which strategies to ditch I also suggest reading the work of Professor John Dunlosky too.

One of the classic experiments is by Ebbinghaus, who found the serial position effect where information from the beginning and end of list of random words were better recalled than those in the center. It provided a beautifully clear account of the exciting work of the s in the newly developed information-processing paradigm, and indeed named the field. I learned many things from him — he influenced my research, the way I think, the way I write, and the decisions I make in how to run a lab. One of the major paradigms of developmental psychology, the Theory of Mind ToMdeals specifically with the ability of an individual to effectively understand and attribute cognition to those around them.
