Questions for cognitive psychologists - Intro to Psychology

  • 0:01 - 0:03
    One of the questions that a cognitive psychologist
  • 0:03 - 0:07
    would ask is, can we really multitask? Because that
  • 0:07 - 0:10
    has to do with focus and attention and that's
  • 0:10 - 0:13
    a cognitive or mental activity. Another question that a
  • 0:13 - 0:16
    cognitive psychologist might ask among these is about
  • 0:16 - 0:19
    the dog learning to salivate when the door opens
  • 0:19 - 0:22
    because what's going on here is the dog is
  • 0:22 - 0:26
    learning to associate the door opening with the food.
  • 0:26 - 0:28
    And that's a learning process, and that's also
  • 0:28 - 0:31
    the domain for cognitive psychologists. What's not the
  • 0:31 - 0:35
    domain for cognitive psychologists is how attachment changes
  • 0:35 - 0:38
    over our lives. That's more the question for
  • 0:38 - 0:41
    a developmental psychologist because it has to do
  • 0:41 - 0:45
    with change over time. Another question that would
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    not be one for cognitive psychology would be
  • 0:47 - 0:51
    mood and dopamine. That's the brain and how neurotransmitters
  • 0:51 - 0:56
    affect our behavior. That would be the question for behavioral neuroscience. The
  • 0:56 - 1:00
    shooter, and whether he's having a psychotic episode, and how competent he
  • 1:00 - 1:06
    is to stand trial is more for a forensic psychologist. Because that
  • 1:06 - 1:10
    has to do with his mental state and the legal question of competence.
