Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast
We are living in a fast-paced world. Advances in technology have changed the way we interact with others, and how we interact with technology itself. We are also discovering that the body and brain interact in a variety of ways that can both be influenced by, and influence, psychological function. Lecture topics in Psychology for the Future will explore the way in which social media, technology, and contemporary social processes are both driven by, and influence, human behaviour. Lectures will also introduce the emerging evidence regarding the relationship between the body and psychological function, such as the effects of diet, exercise and ageing on psychological function. Tutorials will involve a range of class-activities and demonstrations, which will broaden student understanding of the lecture content.
