A List Of Interesting Cognitive Psychology Topics For Research Papers


Cognitive psychology is a fascinating subject to study and provides a range of different topics for students who need to write research papers. However, due to the vast choice, it can make it slightly more difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is that you want to base your essay on. For further inspiration when it comes to narrowing down your title, the following provides advice about selecting a topic to write about.

Finding psychology papers and articles online to use as an added source of inspiration

You may wish to look at titles and topics of essays that have been written about before. In order to find ideas for prewritten academic papers you can search for samples that have been published online.

Some of these samples may be available for free, although you may instead choose to pay for prewritten work available from a range of different companies on the Internet. Equally, you can even have bespoke samples prepared for you, as well as enlisting professionals to help you think of topic ideas.

Connecting topic ideas to form unique essay titles

If you want to try and create a truly unique title for your essay then you may decide to combine any topics that you find from prewritten work that has been published online. For example, you may find essays that have been written about to slightly different topics, both of which you are interested in; you can then take the main theme from each of these academic papers and combine them into a brand-new title, for example, based on a compare and contrast essay.

To give you an idea of some of the topics that you can write about for a cognitive psychology research paper, the following provides a list of titles that you may wish to use.

  • An analysis of language development in young children
  • A study into the links between intelligence and problem solving
