Cognition and neuroscience

Cognition and neuroscience are two vastly different schools. Why do you think it is beneficial to explain behavior and conditioning by combining the two? What do you think might be the outcome if only one perspective (Cognition or Neuroscience) was considered?

Cognitive Psychology

How do people with a brain injury "think"? How has brain damage changed our notions of cognition? Please provide a brief, but specific response, for better understanding.

Learning & Cognition

Is there a difference between learning and performance? If so, what is it? If not, why? Why are cognition and behavior crucial components of the learning process?

Language and Cognition

1. Language structure important in cognition, but is it really? For example, if a child said to you, "You, me, cookie, go now, hurry," you would know what the child meant even though it is not grammatically correct, how is that possible? 2. How does language diversity impact the cognitive process? 3, How does language (ge

Language Acquisition

Do you agree more with Chomsky's perspective that language is acquired through innate ability (language acquisition device), or Skinner's perspective that language is a learned behavior that gets conditioned and reinforced?

The brain and language

Identify areas of the brain involved in the processing of language. Discuss if possible normal or disordered brains.
