will draw many critics. The criticism of his theory that I find to be the most credible is The Other Mind Reply offered by Yale University. This line of thinking asks: if behavior is what we can determine the presence of cognition through, and an AI passes a behavioral test, why don't we attribute cognition to it?I myself do not believe in the philosophy of AI understanding, because to support either side on this issue one must have a belief for or against the ability of man to create another being capable of thought. I do not believe that any machine based creature we may ever create has the ability to think. Thought is something that is independently done and cannot be given to another, or more accurately, programmed in. Regardless of however many tests that may be passed simulating thought and understanding, a programmed being is not capable of thought and understanding.

precursors to his intrigue on the matter, but it was likely due to his experience at the Binet

consistently missed questions that dealt with logical reasoning. It led him to believe that that

Physical Therapy and Biomechanics
Biomechanics is very important in my field of choice, physical therapy. Biomechanics the application of the principle of mechanics to animate a motion. In the article “Our Hands Will Know”: The Development of Tactile Diagnostic Skill: Teaching, Learning and Situated Cognition in a Physical Therapy Program by Mike Ross, he expresses that “the body becomes a physical therapists instrument (para. 15), which is very important. Treating the body as an instrument gives you a feel of what you are doing, what needs to be done as well as how to do it. It also helps the clients be able to relieve their

There are some teens who aren’t successful in connecting with peers offline, because they are isolated geographically or don’t feel accepted in their school/local communities. Spending more time on social media links to feeling socially isolated. It’s actually pretty sad because electronic connection can be life saving for some kids. According to childmind.org, Alexandra Hamlet say’s “The less you are connected with human beings in a deep, empathic way, the less you’re really getting the benefits of a social interaction.” Being on social media all day will have an impact on a person like poorer attention, cognition and mood.

This is “one cognitive process that may be implicated in dehumanization is people’s construal of their relationship with the dehumanized other”(p. 10). So the relation cognition is the person’s ability to link with a human person on human level and feels a certain way towards them. The lose of this cognition relation is one of the factors within Nick Haslams journal that give a sense of how dehumanization may look and feel.

Angus michell Piaget’s theory 24/5/18
Piaget’s theory focuses on development of a child’s cognition through different stages. The idea that a child develops in stages has implications for education. Piaget argues that every kid must pass through each stage in the same order and cannot skip a stage. In terms of learning, this can be applied to the speed at which things are taught. If a student cannot grasp the “building blocks” of a concept, such as if they are having difficulty grasping abstract ideas which can only be done in formal operation, concepts that are based upon these building blocks should not be taught until ready. Related to the notion of development being in stages, lesson

Education is an experience everyone is subjected to from a young age, many educators believe that their ability to teach effectively relies on instinct and experience (Book, Byers, & Freeman, 1983). But the retention of information could be affected by something a subtle as how its presented, and how much cognitive burden is required to decipher it. Diemand-Yauman, Oppenheimer and Vaughan argue that reading material should be presented in a disfluent font as they found it is better remembered than the same material in a fluent font. This is because it requires more cognition to read the material thus improving retention. More cognitive engagement leads to deeper processing

Ropeik (2012) claims that this feeling of control is of utmost importance to individuals, especially while engaged in a debate over the right to gun ownership because it allows them to feel as if they have successfully stood against a society which often usurps individual rights (Ropeik, 2012). These beliefs are common among those who, when placed within the theory of cultural cognition, are individualists who believe that society should allow people to make more of their own decisions by granting them independence and personal freedoms such as the right to own firearms (Ropeik, 2012).

falls back on a form of pre-modernistic irrationalism, that plays some tunes to the style of Christian-existentialist and absurdist: Kierkegaard. Although Kierkegaard was not a post-modernist, Adam shares many similarities in though with him. Like Kierkegaard, Adam accepts the irrationality, and lack of structure to life. Humans live in a state of perpetual strife and conflict as they by instinct attempt to categorize and identify certain laws in which they can predict and universalize human behaviour and morality. However, this proves to be an ever-moving goal post as life itself is irrational, and uncategorizable. Humans change, conditions change, and cognition is incapable of capturing rhyme

It is from this objectivity that moral laws obtain their authority to command. If a law is allowed to become subjective by incorporating empirical elements, it becomes nothing more than a guideline for a particular situation. From an argumentative standpoint, the law is no longer watertight, and anyone wishing to ignore or act against a subjective law may simply protest that he or she is in a somewhat different situation from the one for which the law provides a guide.

Research in these areas test theories, add knowledge to the field and also leads to new theory development. Research builds the field into a reputable discipline.

Another brain function affected by excess or insufficient nutrients are the neurotransmitters managing happiness and well-being inside the brain. The neurotransmitters require an amino acid called tryptophan, and lacking it can cause opposing feelings of depression and anger. This demonstrates that your diet not only affects your brain health, but also your mental health.

As mentioned, older couples have had the opportunity to share a long history of joint experiences with one another and are thus able to play to one another’s strengths and weaknesses.
