Episode 57 of our book read/podcast covering major topics in various fields of psychology moves us into COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY! And while there is no book (no viable open source ones exist) we plan to go through the core areas of cognition, memory, and more. This season, joining us is Dr. Alyssa Jones to act as our cognitive guide through the world outside of our social bubble.

In this episode we discuss ATTENTION through a discussion of the weapon focus effect with special guest Dr. Rob Lockamyeir. We talk about his research on the weapon focus effect and how attention can be influenced by the presence of weapons and other odd items.
