  • Executive functions (collectively referred to as executive function and cognitive control) are a set of cognitive processes that are necessary for the cognitive control of behavior: selecting and successfully monitoring behaviors that facilitate the attainment of chosen goals. (wikipedia.org)
  • The basis of 'higher-level' cognitive functions such as inhibition, flexibility of thinking, problem solving, planning, impulse control, concept formation, abstract thinking, and creativity often arise from much simpler, 'lower-level' forms of cognition and behavior. (wikipedia.org)
  • The attitude of the scientific community towards the unconscious mind has undergone a drastic change from being viewed as a lazy reservoir of memories and non-task oriented behavior to being regarded as an active and essential component in the processes of decision making. (wikipedia.org)
  • stimuli
  • Variables that facilitate fluent processing include objective features of stimuli, like goodness of form, symmetry, figure-ground contrast, as well as experience with a stimulus, like repeated exposure or prototypicality. (wikipedia.org)
  • human
  • Much of the language function is processed in several association areas, and there are two well-identified areas that are considered vital for human communication: Wernicke's area and Broca's area. (wikipedia.org)
  • evaluation
  • Other studies have shown that when presenting people with a factual statement, manipulations that make the statement easier to mentally process-even totally nonsubstantive changes like writing it in a cleaner font or making it rhyme or simply repeating it-can alter judgment of the truth of the statement, along with evaluation of the intelligence of the statement's author. (wikipedia.org)
  • inhibitory
  • Anderson and Spellman's model of retrieval-induced forgetting suggests that when items compete during retrieval, an inhibitory process will serve to suppress those competitors. (wikipedia.org)
  • inhibition
  • Scientifically speaking, memory inhibition is a type of cognitive inhibition, which is the stopping or overriding of a mental process, in whole or in part, with or without intention. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since the mid-1980s, there has been a renewed interest in understanding the role of inhibition in cognition. (wikipedia.org)
  • More recently, researchers suggest that the hippocampus plays a role in the regulation of disliked and competing memories, and fMRI studies have shown hippocampus activity during inhibition processes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Using inhibition to explain memory processes began with the work of Hasher and Zacks (1988), which focused on the cognitive costs associated with aging and bridging the attention-memory gap. (wikipedia.org)
  • Role
  • however, environmental factors play a role in the development of language processing as well. (wikipedia.org)
  • Though the actual level of involvement of the unconscious brain during a cognitive process might still be a matter of differential opinion, the fact that the unconscious brain does play a role in cognitive activity is undeniable. (wikipedia.org)
  • Importantly, the mid-fusiform sulcus serves as a macroanatomical landmark for the fusiform face area (FFA), a functional subregion of the fusiform gyrus assumed to play a key role in processing faces. (wikipedia.org)
  • The exact functionality of the fusiform gyrus is still disputed, but there is relative consensus on its involvement in the following pathways: (see Color center) In 2003, V.S. Ramachandran collaborated with scientists from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in order to identify the potential role of the fusiform gyrus within the color processing pathway in the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • experiments
  • Based on these experiments, Muller argued that the process of attention was based on facilitation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Several experiments have been performed to show that the unconscious brain is able to gather data at a much faster rate than the conscious brain and also that the unconscious brain filters out a great amount of information and can use this information to influence cognitive decision making processes. (wikipedia.org)
  • individual
  • The most commonly shared assumption by both scientists and lay persons alike is that cognition and language should be viewed from an individual perspective. (blackwellreference.com)
  • How the individual processes the world also depends on the phase of the disorder, with differential characteristics between the manic, hypomanic and depressive states. (wikipedia.org)
  • The process of cognition merges again with individual love. (wikipedia.org)
  • Further analysis shows that Broca's area may have less involvement with information for producing individual words, but, instead, Broca's area is shown to coordinate language processing information for speech production on a greater scale. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to Freud past thoughts and memories which are deleted from conscious thought are stored by the unconscious and these thoughts help direct the thoughts and feelings of an individual and influence their decision making processes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Structures
  • The following structures are, or have been considered, part of the limbic system: Cortical areas: Limbic lobe Orbitofrontal cortex, a region in the frontal lobe involved in the process of decision-making. (wikipedia.org)
  • language
  • It assembles the most recent information on this topic, addressing normal cognitive processing for language in adults, the cognitive impairments underlying language disorders arising from a variety of neurologic conditions, and current assessment and treatment strategies for the management of these disorders. (indigo.ca)
  • Not surprisingly, thinking of language and cognition in this way leads to the fascinating and classic issues that have occupied many minds about the relationship between language and cognition and their mutual influence. (blackwellreference.com)
  • Studies have shown that most of the language processing functions are carried out in the cerebral cortex. (wikipedia.org)
  • These areas are usually located in the dominant hemisphere (the left hemisphere in 97% of people) and are considered the most important areas for language processing. (wikipedia.org)

  • important
  • The most important point to make is that the designers of this processor did not create it with a conscious understanding of cognition and the location of their own functions. (timeenoughforlove.org)
  • includes
  • Operations dimension SI includes six operations or general intellectual processes: Cognition-The ability to understand, comprehend, discover, and become aware of information. (wikipedia.org)
  • Repetition
  • Repetition makes statements easier to process relative to new, unrepeated, statements, leading people believe that the repeated conclusion is more truthful. (wikipedia.org)
  • Schemas
  • The phenomena of set and expectancy , illustrated by the "rat man" example, show the effect of schemas on top-down processing. (psywww.com)
  • view
  • But new insight revealing that the unconscious brain might also be an active player in decision making, problem solving, creative writing and critical thinking have revolutionized the predominant view of the importance of the unconscious on cognitive processes. (wikipedia.org)
