In this perspective article, we propose a cognitive architecture model of human action that stresses the importance of cognitive representations stored in long-term memory (LTM) as reference structures underlying and guiding voluntary motor performance. We introduce an experimental approach to ascertain cognitive representation structures, and provide evidence from a variety of different studies, ranging from basic research in manual action to application-oriented research such as athlete performance and rehabilitation. As results from these studies strongly support the presence of functional links between cognitive and motor processes, we regard this approach as a suitable and valuable tool for a variety of different disciplines related to cognition and movement. We conclude this article by highlighting current advances in ongoing research projects aimed at improving interaction capabilities in technical systems, particularly for rehabilitation and everyday support of the elderly, and outline future
Results Men had better median balance times than women at age 53 [Men: 5 (interquartile range: 3-10); Women: 4 (3-7)], 60-64 [M: 3.7 (2.5-5.6); W: 3.3 (2.3-4.8)], and 69 [M: 3.0 (2.0-5.0); W: 2.9 (1.9-4.3)], but a decline in median balance times with age was observed in both sexes. In sex-adjusted and fully-adjusted models, higher childhood cognitive ability was associated with better balance times, although this association weakened with increasing age. A one standard deviation increase in childhood cognitive ability was associated with fully-adjusted mean differences in log-balance times (ln(s)) of 0.12 (95% CI: 0.08-0.15), 0.05 (95% CI: 0.02-0.09) and 0.04 (95% CI: 0.001-0.08) at ages 53, 60-64 and 69, respectively. ...
Introduction. Question: Outline how one study demonstrates principles of the cognitive level of analysis. (The command term outline requires you to Give a brief account or summary.) Answer: The mind can be conceptualized as a set of mental processes that are carried out by the brain. Cognition is a concept referred to any cognitive processes like memory, perception and attention. One of the fundamental principles that define the Cognitive Level of Analysis (CLOA) is that cognitive processes are influenced by social and cultural factors. ...read more. Middle.

The need for cognition (NFC), in psychology, is a personality variable reflecting the extent to which individuals are inclined towards effortful cognitive activities. Need for cognition has been variously defined as "a need to structure relevant situations in meaningful, integrated ways" and "a need to understand and make reasonable the experiential world". Higher NFC is associated with increased appreciation of debate, idea evaluation, and problem solving. Those with a high need for cognition may be inclined towards high elaboration. Those with a lower need for cognition may display opposite tendencies, and may process information more heuristically, often through low elaboration. Need for cognition is closely related to the five factor model domain openness to experience, typical intellectual engagement, and epistemic curiosity (see below). Cohen, Stotland and Wolfe (1955), in their work on individual differences in cognitive motivation, identified a "need for cognition" which they defined as ...

Human cognition and human culture, in their rich diversity and stunning complexity, are now the focus points for scholars representing a broad range of disciplines from neuroscience and evolutionary biology to rhetoric and literary studies. Historically, various cultural and/or scholarly conceptions of cognition - how the human minds come to know and understand - have had profound influence on rhetorical theory, the teaching of rhetoric, and rhetorical practice. Indeed, every practical or pedagogical rhetorical program has relied upon implicit or explicit notions of cognition, or what might be called "cultures of cognition." Furthermore, the ups and downs of the art of rhetorics fortune have been more than once tied to theories of cognition, as in the oft-cited disrepute into which rhetoric fell in the Enlightenment due in part to Cartesian theories of cognition. Rhetorics history, therefore, is closely related to the history of conceptions of cognition, and conceptions of cognition are ...
This study examined the effects of a dl-β-hydroxybutyrate (βHB) containing beverage on cognitive and performance measures during a bout of repeated Wingates. Fifteen healthy, college-aged males (mean ± SD; age: 23.1 ± 2.4 years, height: 165.4 ± 2.0 cm, mass: 81.4 ± 9.2 kg) volunteered for the present study. Trial 1 consisted of baseline measures and familiarization for the protocol. During trials 2 and 3, subjects reported to the laboratory, after a 10-h fast, and ingested 11.38 g of βHB or a placebo (PLA) beverage 30 min before exercise. Participants then completed a cognitive challenge (CC), consisting of a 5-min FitLight response task while cycling. At the cessation of the test, participants then completed four 15-s repeated Wingates with 4 min of rest between, followed by another 5-min CC response task. Blood ketones, glucose, and lactate were measured pre-CC and post-Wingates. βHB levels were significantly higher compared with PLA (0.53 vs. 0.21 mmol/L), respectively. A significant ...

This paper addresses the relation between the need for cognition and rationality in decision-making and also reconsiders the relation between need for cognition and the framing effect using modified versions of the Asian disease task. In the first study (N = 205), a significant and positive relationship was obtained between need for cognition and the rationality of decision-makers. Also a negative and significant relationship was obtained between need for cognition and indecisiveness. These findings are consistent with the theoretical propositions hypothesized in the need for cognition theory (Cacioppo et al., 1996). The second study (N = 462) is an in-depth analysis of the relation between the need for cognition and the framing effect, revealing a positive and significant relation between need for cognition and the respondents' preference for the probabilistic framed alternatives in two risky choice framing effect tasks ...

Dementia is on the rise globally due to an ever increasing aging population. In particular, Alzheimers disease is 43% higher amongst woman. It has been proposed that the reduction in ovarian estrogen production after menopause may contribute to this difference. Memory and mood complaints, including lack of clarity of thought and memory or difficulty finding words, are frequent in perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. The frequency of objectively measured hot flashes in postmenopausal women has been found to be a predictor of delayed verbal memory, with verbal fluency being significantly correlated with the number of daytime hot flashes ...
A couple of remarks on this excellent paper: Thinking of decision in the light of modularity, highlights one of the least plausible of Fodors criteria of modularity, viz., that the operations of a module are not only automatic (in the sense that no decision need be made for them to take place) but also mandatory (in the sense that, once an input for the module is present, the modular process will start and follow its course). This assumes that there are no energy constraints on the operations of modules, when in fact two kinds of such constraints are likely to be involved. Firstly, as a matter of efficient design, processing costs should be incurred only in proportion to expected cognitive benefit. So a stimulus with no expected relevance should be less likely to be processed. This is indeed the case when a stimulus is repeated with no new relevance and elicit a lower and lower cognitive response (what is called habituation). Secondly, there may be too many inputs fitting the input conditions ...
Sex differences in declarative memory and visuospacial ability are robust in cross-sectional studies. The present longitudinal study examined whether sex differences in cognition were present over a 10-year period, and whether age modified the magnitude of sex differences. Tests assessing episodic and semantic memory, and visuospatial ability were administered to 625 nondemented adults (initially aged 35-80 years), participating in the population based Betula study at two follow-up occasions. There was stability of sex differences across five age groups and over a 10-year period. Women performed at a higher level than men on episodic recall, face and verbal recognition, and semantic fluency, whereas men performed better than women on a task assessing visuospatial ability. Sex differences in cognitive functions are stable over a 10-year period and from 35 to 90 years of age. Decreasing levels of estrogen in women and sex differences in age-related cortical atrophy do not seem to influence ...

AU - Mohler, Martha J. AU - OConnor, Kathy. AU - Zamrini, Edward. AU - Tirambulo, Coco. AU - Toosizadeh, Nima. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Background: Dual-task actions challenge cognitive processing. The usefulness of objective methods based on dual-task actions to identify the cognitive status of older adults has been previously demonstrated. However, the properties of select motor and cognitive tasks are still debatable. We investigated the effect of cognitive task difficulty and motor task type (walking versus an upper-extremity function [UEF]) in identifying cognitive impairment in older adults. Methods: Older adults (≥65 years) were recruited, and cognitive ability was measured using the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA). Participants performed repetitive elbow flexion under three conditions: 1) at ...
Objectives. Treatment transitions are frequent in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) but little is known about cognitive responses pre- to post-transplantation or after transplant failure. The purpose of this study was to examine changes in illness cognitions across treatment transitions between dialysis and transplantation and their impact on quality of life (QOL). Methods. In this longitudinal study, ESRD patients (N= 262) patients were followed up across treatment transitions over a 7-year observation window using the Illness Perceptions Questionnaire, the Illness Effects Questionnaire, and measures of QOL. Study sample comprised the patients from this cohort who switched treatment modality (N= 60 post-transplantation; N= 28 transplant failure). Data were collected while on dialysis or transplantation and at 6 months post-treatment change. Results. Significant changes in QOL and illness perceptions were found in treatment transitions with opposite patterns of either improvement or deterioration ...
Distributed cognition refers to a process in which cognitive resources are shared socially in order to extend individual cognitive resources or to accomplish something that an individual agent could not achieve alone. Human cognitive achievements are based on a process in which an agents cognitive processes and the objects and constraints of the world reciprocally affect each other. Cognitive processes can be distributed between humans and machines (physically distributed cognition, Norman, 1993; Perkins, 1993) or between cognitive agents (socially distributed cognition). Salomon (1993, p. 112) has pointed out that distributed cognition forms systems that consist of an individual agent, his or her peers, teachers, and socio-culturally formed cognitive tools. (Lehtinen et al.). ...
There is a well-defined relationship between stress and cognition. The intake of phospholipids has the potential to attenuate responses to stress and thus protect cognitive performance. The aims of this thesis were (a) develop suitable methodologies, both in the real-world and laboratory, to examine the effects of stress on cognition; (b) identify characteristics of individuals who may be particularly stress vulnerable; and (c) assess the potential for a phospholipid intervention to attenuate the response to stress and the impact of this stress exposure on cognitive function. These aims were addressed in four studies. Studies 1 - 3 aimed to identify a number of design and methodological conditions suitable for a phospholipid intervention assessing cognitive performance under stress (Study 4). The identification of a naturalistic or laboratory stress context capable of eliciting cortisol responses over repeated exposures, selection of cognitive tests sensitive to stress impairment, and ...

Glenbergs research for the past two decades has focused on the embodied theory of cognition, the idea that cognitive processes-both conscious and unconscious-are not disconnected from the body, as suggested by the philosopher René Descartes. Instead, the fact that we have legs, arms, eyes, ears, a motor system, and an emotional system underlie both our experiences of the world and our thinking. "It makes no sense for a faculty like cognition to have evolved without consideration of the body," says Glenberg. "Were not computers, were biological systems. Were not programmed, were evolved. We should consider human cognition as flowing from the cognition of other animals." ". ...
The Symbol Digit Modalities Test (SDMT) detects cognitive impairment in less than five minutes. This simple, economical test is an ideal way for busy clinicians to screen for organic cerebral dysfunction in both children (eight years and older) and adults
Initial studies examined the structure of the brain, particularly the size or volume of specific brain regions, using static images obtained via computerized tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These studies identified the frontal cortex and hippocampus as potentially relevant brain regions in the pathophysiology of depression, hypotheses that were supported by post-mortem studies. Subsequent research looked at regional blood flow or energy metabolism in the brain using functional MRI (fMRI) or positron emission tomography (PET). These studies capture the activity of the brain either in the "resting state" (i.e., when patients are not focusing on any particular thought or stimulus) or when the brain is actively responding to a task that induces an emotional or cognitive response. More recently, researchers have applied machine learning methods to fMRI data to identify brain networks and connectivity. Other types of neuroimaging for mood disorders include diffusion tensor imaging ...
Many people with MS experience cognitive problems, like memory disturbances or slowing down of information processing speed.. Cognitive functions are harder to measure than clinical disability and MRIs, so they are not routinely evaluated in clinical practice.. The concept of no evidence of disease activity (NEDA) has recently emerged as an important outcome measure for MS in research studies or clinical trials. It means no relapses or disability progression and no new white matter lesions are identified with MRI. However, it is not known if maintaining NEDA has a positive impact on cognition or brain atrophy (shrinkage).. A research team from Italy carried out a study to evaluate the correlation between NEDA status, cognitive functions and brain shrinking.. They followed 42 people with relapsing remitting MS for two years and found that only 30.8% of them achieved NEDA status. About half of those with NEDA status still had deterioration of some cognitive functions.. The recommendation from ...
There is growing concern among patients with early-stage breast cancer about self-perceived or objective cognitive changes following their diagnosis and treatment. Symptoms include difficulties with multi-tasking, short-term memory, attention and concentration and word-finding, which may have a detrimental effect on quality of life. The severity of symptoms varies widely, when assessed objectively, the problems are generally subtle. Early clinical observational studies accumulated evidence that suggested cognitive problems could be attributed to the direct neurotoxic effects of chemotherapy. However, observations of cognitive deficits before the start of any treatment question the singular role of chemotherapy. Additionally, results from studies examining the effect of endocrine therapies on cognitive function are mixed.. Recent neuroimaging techniques have reported structural and functional neural changes associated with breast cancer treatments. Also, translational research has accumulated ...
The purpose of the past three (or four if you count joint attention) blogs was to look into the earliest forms of social cognition to analyze the beginnings of some of the most studied topics in social cognition. Developmental social cognition is a field that is ever-growing and ever-changing. One of my favourite part of doing the research for the three blogs was reading papers from the 80s and 90s all the way to reading papers that had been published only days earlier. The leaps and bounds that have been made, and all the hours that have been put into this topic make it a subject I could have successfully spoken about for the entire duration of this course.. Early social cognition, joint attention, self-awareness, and the earliest development of language demonstrate many branches of the same tree that is social cognition of child development. It would have been interesting to study memory, children raised in bilingual homes, the early cognition of learned behaviour, and the early cognition of ...

To test this hypothesis, the Sobel laboratory had study participants perform non-emotional cognitive tasks while the scientists measured nasal airflow and recorded brain activity via electroencephalography (EEG). The scientists found that participants unconsciously tended to time the onset of their cognitive efforts to coincide with nasal inhalation. When the pattern-matching task-the simplest task-was covertly timed to coincide specifically with participant inhalation or exhalation, the results were even stronger: Inhalation at task onset was associated with improved performance.. The study was published in Nature Human Behaviour in March.. "Our results show that its not only the olfactory system that is sensitive to inhalation and exhalation-the entire brain is," says Prof. Sobel. "We could generalize to say that the brain works better with inhalation." Moreover, the nose truly knows, as synchronized inhalation through the mouth had no impact on cognitive performance.. While the benefit of ...
In this cohort of Scots born in 1921 survival beyond 76 years related to gender, cognition and physical health measures. The very narrow age range meant that chronological age, itself, did not predict survival. Furthermore, early-life influences, such as childhood IQ, did not have any significant effect in contrast to younger cohorts [2, 3]. Neither did variables relevant to earlier adult life such as education and occupation. Lower scores on several of the Wave 1 mental ability variables were associated with poorer survival: in a multivariate model UCO, a measure of executive function, was the best cognitive predictor. Amongst health variables, multivariate models showed that conventional measures of health status, such as diagnosed disease and medication use, were poor predictors of survival. Key health status predictors were respiratory function, mood score and smoking habit. The survival of participants who had given up smoking was no worse than those who had never smoked. Those who ...

Virtually all cognitive activity resembles problem solving (Simon, 1981). Moment by moment, and over longer time spans, we face problems that need solutions. Problem solving can be described in abstract terms as the task of moving a system from its current State A to a goal State B. Any successful cognitive act (retrieving a memory, perceiving a scene, understanding a passage) can be seen as such a process.. In what sense is all cognition problem solving?. This definition of cognition as problem solving encompasses an incredibly wide range of situations. In visual perception, the problem is to come up with a construction that accurately describes the sensory world. In language comprehension, the problem is to reconstruct the authors intended meaning. In motor activity, the problem is to achieve a goal by executing an action. Any time there is a goal or purpose to an activity, there must be problem-solving within the system to determine how to reach that goal.. In what respects are getting a ...
The organism-in-its-environment is recognized as the basic unit of analysis when dealing with living beings. This paper seeks to define the fundamental implications of the concept of the organism-in-its-environment in terms of the biosemiotics concept of human distributed cognition. Human distributed cognition in a biosemiotics context is defined as the ability of a self-referencing organism-in-its-environment to interact with its environment to satisfy its physiological (internal and external) and social needs to survive and sustain itself. The ontogenetic development of the organism-in-its-environment serves as the backdrop to discover the implications of distributed cognition that have general applicability in organisms, but in this paper, are made relevant to human beings.. ...

An important collection of studies providing a fresh and original perspective on the nature of mind, including thoughtful and detailed arguments that explain why the prevailing paradigm - the computational conception of language and mentality - can no longer be sustained. An alternative approach is advanced, inspired by the work of Charles S. Peirce, according to which minds are sign-using (or semiotic) systems, which in turn generates distinctions between different kinds of minds and overcomes problems that burden more familiar alternatives. Unlike conceptions of minds as machines, this novel approach has obvious evolutionary implications, where differences in semiotic abilities tend to distinguish the species. From this point of view, the scope and limits of computer and AI systems can be more adequately appraised and alternative accounts of consciousness and cognition can be more thoroughly criticised. Readership: Intermediate and advanced students of computer science, AI, cognitive ...
Pearson correlations were used to assess the bivariate associations of kidney and cognitive function with other covariates. The Wilcoxon rank sum test was used to compare men and women. We used a series of linear mixed-effects models to examine whether kidney function was related to the rate of change in cognition during the study period.19 The initial model included a term for both linear cognitive change (time in years since baseline) as well as a quadratic term for quadratic change in global cognition (time x time) as well as terms for baseline eGFR, age, sex, and education and their interactions with time and time x time. Because there were no significant interactions between time x time with the terms for eGFR, age, and education, we did not retain these quadratic interaction terms in subsequent models. However, terms for sex x time x time were included in those models in which there were significant interactions (global cognition, episodic memory, and semantic memory). The term for eGFR ...

Aging, also in the absence of pathological conditions, is associated with cognitivedecline, especially in so called fluid abilities, such as episodic memory andexecutive functions. Due to an ongoing demographic shift, a larger part of thepopulation will reach higher ages, and more people will be affected by age-relatedcognitive decline. Finding ways of counteracting this development have the potentialof having large benefits for both individuals and society. It has long beenknown that living in environments that are rich in terms of cognitive challengescan affect cognitive ability in old age. In this regard, intervention studies in whichthe amount of cognitive stimulation is manipulated can therefore generate insightsto the causality of such effects in specific cognitive functions. Cognitive trainingas means to counteract negative effects of aging on cognition has received a lot ofscientific interest in the last decades.This focus of this thesis is cognitive training interventions, which is ...
The cognitive may, therefore, be assumed to be like other natural domains, namely, the cognitive must be discriminated on the basis of underlying causal processes. The point we have been driving at here might be approached in another way, namely, we believe there is more to cognition than merely passing the Turing test. Some of the mechanisms that might be used to pass the Turing test will count as cognitive mechanisms for doing this, while other mechanisms that might suffice will not count as cognitive mechanisms. A computer program might pass the Turing test by having a listing of all possible sensible conversations stored in memory. Such a program, however, would not constitute a cognitive mechanism for passing the test. This is presumably because we have sufficient ground for saying that the look-up table process is not of a kind with the complex of processes that go into enabling a normal human to carry out the same sort of conversation. The look-up table may, for example, answer questions ...
Often a student may have strengths in many areas but may have weaknesses relative to his or her strengths in one or more of the processing areas shown in the diagram above. In evaluating a students work, the types of errors you see might suggest where s/he is experiencing difficulty. It helps to understand students have a wide range of processing abilities when you interpret student errors. While you are not in a position of diagnosing specific cognitive abilities, you can see patterns such as those that involve language misinterpretations (i.e. consistent difficulties understanding directions or word usage) and suspect that something in the language area may need attention. Another example is if you see a student frequently misinterprets signs and symbols on a math test or homework, but seems able to understand on a conceptual level, that is a clue that s/he may be experiencing visual perceptual problems, but s/he is doing fine in higher reasoning abilities. If specific problems such as these ...
In a recent news report, I talked about a study of older adults that found that their sense of control over their lives fluctuates significantly over the course of a day, and that this impacts on their cognitive abilities, including reasoning and memory. Sense of control - a persons feeling that they are (or are not) in control of their life - is an attribute that includes perceived competence, as well as locus of control (you can take a Locus of Control Test here, if youre interested), and in general it tends to decline in older adults. But obviously it is an attribute that, across the board, varies dramatically between individuals.. In older adults, a stronger sense of control is associated with more successful aging, and among people in general, with better cognitive performance. This isnt surprising, as it is entirely consistent with related associations we have found: between strategy use and cognitive performance; between the belief that intelligence is malleable rather than fixed and ...
Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the last 30 years, with a prevalence of 8.4% among children ages 2 to 5 [1]. In addition, obesity disproportionately affects children of low socioeconomic status, with a rate of nearly 15% for children under the age of 5 [1] in this group. Children who are obese have a greater chance of being obese during adulthood, increasing the likelihood of serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and various forms of cancer [2]. It is well established that obesity is a result of complex interactions between genetic, environmental, and social factors [3, 4]. One current model proposes six levels of contributors: cellular, child, clan, community, country and culture [5]. For young children, the clan or family level may be of particular importance as young children spend most of their time at home [6].. Within the clan/family level, one intriguing factor-parental stimulation of the childs cognitive development (e.g. opportunities for ...

in Canada. Our estimates indicate that non-cognitive skills play a role in determining income at age 25 that is on par with that of cognitive skills. Our analysis demonstrates that it is crucial to account for the dynamics in decision making since this demonstrates that the effect of cognitive skills on adult incomes arises by one increasing the likelihood of obtaining further education. Conditioning on the choice to complete a university degree, cognitive skills are found to play no additional role in determining earnings at age 25. In contrast, non-cognitive skills not only indirectly influence adult income through the channel of educational choice, but they are directly rewarded in the labour market. Last, evidence from policy simulations suggest that equal attention should be given to policies that cultivate different dimensions of non-cognitive skills as those that focus solely on cognitive skills..

Primarily the kidneys function is to remove toxins from the body and maintain the bodys chemical balance. Many medical conditions can be caused if this functioning diminishes-blood pressure and hypertension being the most commonly known. However, a unique study conducted by Temple University suggests, decreased kidney function is associated with decreased cognitive functioning in areas such as global cognitive ability, abstract reasoning and verbal memory.. This is the first study describing change in cognitive functioning in order to determine which specific abilities are most affected in individuals with impaired renal function.. These researchers examined longitudinal data, five years apart, of 590 people to see how much kidney function had changed during that time period, and to what level their cognitive functioning had changed. They were not only interested in the overall change but also in specific abilities such as abstract reasoning and verbal memory.. Greater a persons decrease in ...

Hmmm, whats this, a controvertial statement? ;-) Its not too far fetched to suppose that perceptual processes at the lowest levels are actively modulated by attentional absorption such as in your example. However, this modulation is probably not as severe as that experienced at the cognitive level; I get your point.

This volume has the rare potential to capture the interest of theoretical psychologists, researchers, practitioners, and students alike. Those with passing interest will be captivated by intrguing argument, and experts will be drawn into a rigorous debate around previously commonly held understandings. At issue are relationships between reality, cognition, and language.... Edwards combines scholarship, expertise, and originality, with a tangible enthusiasm for his topic.... a valuable addition to the library of readers committed to exploring new ideas and investigating alternative research and practice approaches.... The value of this volume rests in the writers ability to respect the traditional and the contemporary while simultaneously demonstrating the greater contribution that may be made by both in the light of suggested new understandings about discourse and cognition. Minimally, the invitation is a tantalizing one; maximally, Edwards discursive psychology may prove an exciting idea that ...
In the last consciousness post, which discussed issues with panpsychism and simple definitions of consciousness, I laid out five functional layers of cognition which I find helpful when trying to think about systems that are more or less conscious. Just to recap, those layers are: Reflexes, primal reactions to stimuli. Perception, sensory models of the…

Cognition Through Understanding presents a selection of Tyler Burges essays that use epistemology to illumine powers of mind. The essays focus on epistemic warrants that differ from those warrants commonly discussed in epistemology--those for ordinary empirical beliefs and for logical and mathematical beliefs. The essays center on four types of cognition warranted through understanding--self-knowledge, interlocution, reasoning, and reflection.

see sems see shes pa In its utimate aspect cognition is limitless due to its being synonymous with pure awareness, nonconceived and without particulars of concepts or, discursive thinking. As such, this unlimited aspect as cognition is still not changed as a result of discursive thought, conceptuality or its particulars, suffering/not-suffering, samsara and nirvana notwithstanding as is recognized by their actual inseparability (dbyer med). This pure cognizance, then, comes to be termed re-cognition as it becomes reflective of its own innate purity, and re-cognizes - of its own inherent potentiality as particulars, or - all things. Nonetheless, all things...each and every single thing whatsoever...are as spontaneous and nameless within and as themselves as they are even in their recognition as particulars, each with an infinite array of attributes or aspects which come to be defined as a direct result of such re-cognition and reflections.

How do legal actors know what the relevant facts and law are in any given case? The answer, we argue, is that they know in the same way that ordinary citizens know. When deliberating about what dangers are real and which are specious, and about which policies are efficacious and which are futile or even self-defeating, ordinary folk will rarely have direct access to the answers themselves. Instead, they must make decisions about what information and which sources warrant their trust. They must judge whether the stories in which the information is embedded are plausible and consistent with one another. They must consider which norms are relevant, given the facts as they know them. And all the empirical evidence we have suggests they will do all of this through interlocking social and cognitive mechanisms that cause them to rely on a culturally contingent situation sense, an implicit knowledge of how the material and social world works and who can be trusted to report it accurately..
