Cognitive psychology

The study of the human Mind and mental processes, often with computational or information-theoretical models of the brain (see Cognitivism for more on the theoretical framework).

A hazy subset of Cognitive science, cogpsy is focused particularly on humans and on mental phenomena, whereas cognitive science is more wide-ranging, including discussions of anthropology, linguistics, animal behavior, neurophysiology, artificial intelligence, etc.
