  • An ancient text known as The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine identifies the brain as the nexus of wisdom and sensation, includes theories of personality based on yin-yang balance, and analyzes mental disorder in terms of physiological and social disequilibria. (wikipedia.org)
  • Of particular note is that cognition is sealed away in the brain, meaning that mental cognition is cut off from the external world and is only possible by the input of sensory information. (wikipedia.org)

  • John Stuart Mill envisioned a science of mental phenomena informed by associationism, empirical introspection, and neurophysiology, and he advanced specific ideas that still influence modern conceptions of cognition. (mdpi.com)
  • Mill boldly asserted that certain laws of order governed mental phenomena, and that psychology was well-suited to study these phenomena empirically and in parallel with physiology. (mdpi.com)
  • As will be discussed, important aspects of Mill's conceptions of mental phenomena have been adopted and transmitted in the marketplace of ideas across time. (mdpi.com)
  • This article reviews John Stuart Mill's proposal that mental phenomena could be effectively studied through empirical means and highlights important interrelations between Mill's ideas and modern conceptions of cognition. (mdpi.com)
  • problem

  • Being labelled with a mental health problem isn't good at all. (blogspot.co.uk)
  • It frightens me to think that just because I and many other young people have a mental health problem or problems, that we are treated unequally because of a lack of understanding. (blogspot.co.uk)
  • Focusing on the emergence of strategies rather than on issues of choice or flexibility of choice, I ground these ideas in the enactivist theory of cognition, particularly in issues of problem posing, for discussing the nature of the solving processes at play when solving mental mathematics problems. (ed.gov)
  • I complement this analysis and conceptualization by offering two examples about issues of emergence of strategies and of problem posing, in order to offer illustrations thereof, as well as to highlight the fruitfulness of this orientation for better understanding the processes at play in mental mathematics contexts. (ed.gov)
  • effects
  • The MI group was further found to enhance motor performance after sleep, hence suggesting that sleep-related effects are effective following mental practice. (ed.gov)
  • Although John Stuart Mill's influence on economic theory and moral philosophy are well known, his contributions to the fledgling science of psychology and their far-reaching effects on the contemporary understanding of cognition are under-recognized. (mdpi.com)
  • treatment

  • ideas
  • This characterization of cognition, though provisional, must be established in order to understand and appreciate some of the influential historical ideas that have shaped modern views. (mdpi.com)
