There is a lot of content on this site, so I tried to break down everything in a few different ways. First, I broke down the posts by associate’s degree and bachelor’s degree classes. Second, I included a breakdown of all the categories, the most popular tags, and the sub-fields of psychology. Last, I added the most recent 10 posts and the 10 latest comments, so you can see the posts that people are interacting with the most.

What factors affect language acquisition? Which factor do you believe has the largest influence on language acquisition? Explain why. Your initial response is due by Day 2. It appears that there is a critical period in which language can be easily learned, and that outside of that critical period language is much harder to learn.… Read more
This week I learned a lot about primary and secondary memory. I had already studied short-term vs. long-term memory in other psychology classes, as well as Ebbinghaus’ nonsense syllables. After reading about the working memory model Ebbinghaus’ theories seem simplistic. The cognitive perspective is supposed to be modeled after our understanding of computer architecture, but… Read more
Why can you remember what you were doing when catastrophes occurred (e.g., terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, the Challenger disaster, assassination of John F. Kennedy)? Your initial response is due by Day 4. I think this goes back to our understanding of the way in which long-term memory, or secondary memory,… Read more
What strategies may be used to enhance memory? Your initial response is due by Day 2. I have already studied the idea of short-term and long-term memory, according to Ebbinghaus. Ebbinghaus used his nonsense syllables, that is three letter words made of random letters, to deduce that short-term memory is limited to about 7 literary… Read more
I suppose the most profound bit of information that I learned this week was the neurological nature of Phineas Gage’s accident. I had read about the accident in other classes, but I never knew that we actually knew exactly how the cognitive representation of neurological processes worked. For instance, that the VMPFC and the amygdala… Read more
Is attention a limited resource? Explain why or why not. Your initial response is due by Day 4. Attention is a limited resource, as far as awareness is concerned; however, the processing of physical characteristics and even some processing of semantics takes place all of the time below the level of awareness (Willingham, 2007). So,… Read more
How does the way in which you perceive the world influence your thought process? Provide a specific example in your response. What other factors do you think influence your thought process? Your initial response is due by Day 2. I was absolutely intrigued by the discussion in our text of visual perception. In particular, it… Read more
I covered some things this week that I have learned in other classes, so in part this week acted to reinforce what I have already learned. I did, however, break new ground in understanding exactly how the behaviorist tradition contributed to the cognitive perspective of human psychology. I had already studied the historical events that… Read more
Why is it important to study cognitive psychology? How might the principles of cognitive psychology be used in other disciplines (e.g., education, business)? Your initial response is due by Day 4. I think that the greatest shortfall of behaviorism is that it can only hypothesize the future statistical probability of any given behavior. It was… Read more
What is cognitive psychology? Would you classify cognitive psychology as a hard science or a soft science? Explain your answer. Your initial response is due by Day 2. As I read about cognitive psychology I was reminded of an old Bible verse that I learned in Sunday School: “Now we see but a poor reflection… Read more
