  • Theories Of Extended Cognition

    I, and it seems a lot of philosophers do as well, have a great deal of trouble with getting a handle on what Cognition is. René Descartes states that the mind is ultimately the bit that thinks about thinking, his oft quoted “I think therefore I am” is a case in point. I also think that to have cognition one must also have intentionality, in that something must drive or exist in the conscious that supports the thoughts, beliefs, desires, hopes. This is what is missing from the aids to thought or mental states which is extended cognition. The central tenets of extended cognition are that cognition extends out of the mind and body. This is taking cognition beyond just embodied cognition where the body also plays a part in cognition. Philosophers…

  • Benefits Vigilance And Cognition

    either input task itself, gait stability, or both (Malcom et al., 2015). This shows the importance of attention in cognitive function.

    Cognition, as defined in our notes, is the “mental processes related to acquisition, storage, and retrieval” (Frank P. Gengaro, Ph.D., MSW, M.A., LCSW, SI, TM, TM, TL, TMC, TTP). This basically means that cognition has a huge part in acquiring information and storing the information in an efficient way so that we can access it whenever we need to.

    verbal responses but also facial and body cues. Many factors influence how a person interacts with others around them, two being meta-cognition and social cognition.

  • Arthur Glenberg Embodied Cognition

    Embodied cognition is the possibility of unification of neural networks in our brain and direct interaction with the physical world. The body contains, regulates, and shapes the nature of mental activity. Arthur Glenberg argues that our brains guide the body for interacting with the social world (1). When a situation arises, one must analyze and produce a solution given the abilities that the body can perform. For example, when a human is threatened by violence, they do not have a shell to…

  • Social Cognition

    Cognition has an impact on a lot of different areas such as: attention, perception, memory, problem solving and even production of language. This process focuses on the human behavior and how we think and behave.

However, people who have schizophrenia have a harder time to showing the basics of social cognition. Schizophrenia patients have…
