Cognition and perception are two closely related areas of psychology that deal with the processes by which people acquire, process, and use information about the world around them.

Cognition refers to the mental processes involved in acquiring and processing information, such as attention, memory, language, reasoning, and problem-solving. It encompasses a wide range of mental activities and is concerned with how we perceive, understand, and think about information.

Perception, on the other hand, refers to the process by which we interpret and organize sensory information from the environment to form meaningful experiences. It is concerned with how we process and make sense of the information we receive through our senses, such as sight, sound, touch, and taste. Perception is a complex process that involves multiple stages, including sensation, attention, and interpretation.

Both cognition and perception are crucial for our ability to interact with the world and to understand and make sense of our experiences. They are also closely related, with perception affecting cognition, and cognition affecting perception. Psychologists study these processes in order to better understand how people process information and form experiences, and to inform the development of interventions and treatments for individuals with cognitive or perceptual difficulties.
