They consist of diverse component subtasks and demand that people keep their attention focused throughout the entire process. Besides the initial construction of representations, higher cognitive tasks require individuals to keep the goal of the task in mind, to shift from one sub-task to the next, and to update representations by activating Long Term Memory (LTM) information. The fulfillment of these complex cognitive tasks demands people to activate all their WM resources in a controlled and supervised way. The more complex and novel the intellectual task an individual is faced with the more involved WM's executive processes are in its …show more content…

    Food For Thought People often wonder what kind of impact eating certain types of food can hold on the human body. Among the alterations that they typically cite are weight loss, weight gain, improved stamina, and an increased ability to function in life along with other effects.

As stated before, different varieties of food can impact one’s psychological state in many ways.…
