Cognitive Psychology

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.
