Cognitive Psychology is the scientific study of mind as information processor. It involves the study of all the things that go on inside your brain. Knowing more about how people think and process the data not only help researchers to gain deeper understanding of how the human brain works, but it allows psychologists to develop new ways of serving people dealing with cognitive psychological difficulties. Cognitive psychology has also improved our understanding of how people form, store, process and recall the memories. Meanwhile the emphasis of psychology shifted away from the study of conditioned behavior and psychoanalytical notions about the study of the mind, towards the understanding of human information processing, using laboratory investigation. Cognitive approach believes that internal mental behavior can be scientifically studied using experiments. Cognitive psychology assumes that a mediation process occurs between stimulus (input) and response (output). Computer analogy is also proved to be very useful in case of cognitive psychology-the use of the computational tools for thinking how the human mind handles information is known as the computer analogy. Essentially, computer codes information, stores information, utilize the acquired information, and produce an output. Such idea of using computer as a tool was adopted by cognitive psychologists as a model of how human thoughts work.

Behavioral psychology is a systematic approach in understanding the behavior of humans and other animals. This sates that all the behaviors are either responses or reflexes to the respective stimuli in the environment, or are the result of individual’s history, especially including reinforcement and punishment. This whole together with the individual’s current state and controlling stimuli decides one’s behavior. The researchers and scientists who study behavioral psychologies are striving to understand why we behave the way we do now. Also, scientists are concerned with discovering patterns in the action and behaviors of human and animals with the hope that behavioral psychology can help us to predict how individual will behave to a situation.

Cognitive development includes study in neuroscience and psychology which is concerned with child’s development in terms of perceptual skill, conceptual resources and several other aspects of developed adult brain. From the point of view with respect to the adult, cognitive development can also be called as intellectual development. Earlier it was believed that infants are remained without cognition until they learned language, but soon after cognitive development study it was proved that infants are aware about the surroundings and explore since birth. Cognition development depends on cognition which itself is an action of learning. Cognition phenomenon varies person by person because of factors like: how person receives, thinks process and gains understanding of world by their own interaction towards it.

Mirror neurons are that class of neuron which only fires when an animal or human acts and when they observes the same action performed by another. It is named so because the neuron “mirrors” the behavior of the other. Such neurons are primarily observed in primate species, though they are also found in humans, but birds have been found possessing imitative behaviors and neurological evidences also suggests the presence of some form of mirroring system. Some researchers in neuroscience consider that this mirror system provides the physiological mechanism for the coupling of action. Also mirror neurons may be important for understanding the actions and thoughts of other people for learning new and unique skills by imitation.

Any disorder related to nervous system comes under the category of neurological disorders. Although both brain and spinal cord are surrounded by tough membranes, by bones of skull and spinal vertebrae and isolated by the blood-brain barrier. Involvement for neurological disorders includes preventative measure such as lifestyle changes, physiotherapy, operations, medication and neurorehabilitation. Neurological problem’s specific causes vary but genetic disorders, infections, congenital abnormalities and brain injury including malnutrition, spinal cord or nerve injury. Millions of people are affected by neurological disorders; more than 6 million people die each year because of stroke, over 80% of these deaths takes place in developed and developing countries.

Loss of intellectual functions such as thinking, remembering, and reasoning occurs in cognitive dysfunction. Cognitive function is also known as brain fog. The people suffering from the same loses concentration power and face trouble with verbal recall. According Marshall Pathogenesis, microbes are the causative agents for cognitive dysfunction. Moreover diseases like Alzheimer’s disease are the severe forms of cognitive dysfunction. For elderly cancer patient’s cognitive dysfunction has many applications. A patient suffering from this need’s special hospitality and special care planning than that of normal patients. Not all patients suffering from cognitive dysfunction in depression, and not all people with depression suffers from cognitive function.

Electrophysiology is the field of study that deals with the electrical properties and activities of biological cells and tissues. It helps in studying the generation of the electrical signals and their effect on the body. EPS is the test that is carried to understand the nature of abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmias. The other aspects of electrophysiology are implanting cardiac devices to regulate the heartbeat. Also, electrical signal in the retina is a pre-installed property of nervous system which remains electrically active at all times and the standard of activity alters with excitation. Ophthalmologist drops light on retina to excite the retina, number of responses can be stimulated from different layers of retina with then are recorded and observed.

Cognitive health refers to the health of the brain and its function wholly and solely. This deal with several types of functions such as; memory, judgment, intuition. In short if cognitive disorders are there, it can take many forms. One of the common cognitive health related problem is decrease in mental function, dementia, which generally develops in later phase of life. Cognitive health decline naturally occurs while aging but it is age independent and can be found in any age group. Even, other health problems that are not age related also fall under the umbrella of cognitive issues. Like; depression is not necessarily age- related, same with brain injury or vitamin B12 deficiency.

Physiological Psychology is a subfield of Psychology that deals with the behavioral effects of physiology. It can help in uncovering many facts and myths about human behavior and helps us to gain knowledge about mechanisms of nervous system. Physiological psychology describes brain-behavior relationships and many other topics relating the aspects behavior of the body or activity in an organism to a body’s response. sleep, emotion, ingestion, senses, reproductive behavior, learning/memory, communication, and neurological disorders are the fields on which Physiological psychologists usually focus their attention.

Neuropsychology is the field of psychology which deals with the study of the structure and function of the brain. It aims to understand how cognition and behavior are influenced by brain functioning and behavioral and cognitive aspects of diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders. In higher primates it has also been applied to record the electrical activity from cells. Injuries, Illness and other diseases of the brain can affect person’s way to feel, think, and behave, Neuropsychological study here helps in evaluating and treating various types disorders.

Brain Mapping is the study of brain anatomy and function using imaging and other non-imaging techniques. Basically, brain mapping is the higher form of neuroimaging produced by the result of data processing and analysis, sometimes from the behavior and brain response. The technique stands nowhere individually but rely on precision in image representation, analysis and other techniques. Brian mapping is constantly evolving in order to provide solid understanding of brain anatomy. It helps in distinguishing parts of the brain such as prefrontal cortex and primary motor cortex. It also makes it easier to study about how human learns, understands and react.

Social Psychology is the study of how people behave, feel and act in the context of society. It influences the psychological study involving social impact in it. The presence of others affects the individual’s mindset in such a way that even when alone society influence persists in our mind. This interaction and impact of society on one’s psychology helps in studying the way these feelings, intentions and behavior are constructed and how these mental states influence the interactions with others. Social Psychologists also explains social situations are the result of mental state and human behavior.

Pediatric Neurology is the branch of medicine which deals with the management and diagnosis of neurological condition in infants and children. It also includes study of diseases and disorders related to spinal cord, brain and nervous system that affects individuals of such a young age group. The conditions in these cases vary considerably, from disorders such as migraine or cerebral palsy to more complex conditions such as neurodegenerative disorders. Being younger and immature, they need more care and consultation in medical environment.

Neurodevelopmental issue are weaknesses of the development and improvement of the cerebrum or focal sensory system. A smaller utilization of the term alludes to a confusion of cerebrum work that influences feeling, learning capacity, poise and memory and that unfurls as an individual creates and develops. Gliogenesis results in the formation of non-neuronal glia populations derived from multipotent neural stem cells. In this ability, glial cells offer a couple of functions to both the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS). Subsequent differentiation of glial cell populations results in function-specialized glial lineages.

Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that uses real time display that assess individual’s brainwave and function provide on the bases of computer-based program. Brain waves are the electrical impulse generated during brain cells activity and communication with one another. They act as an agent which tells us about how induvial feel and function. Neurofeedback use real-time brain activity, with data and measurements displaying in the form of video or sound. It is also helping in regulating brain functioning in a healthier manner.

Cognitive Dissonance is the mental state where an individual holds more than two contradictory beliefs and values. This produces a mental discomfort to the one hence leading to alteration in attitude and fundamental behavior. In order to survive in the real-world psychological consistency is must for a human being, person who experience inconsistency feels uncomfortable with his own thoughts psychologically unstable. The degree of cognitive dissonance depends on factors such as, how firm they are regarding and a belief and up to which degree are they inconsistent towards the belief.
