COGNITIVE SCIENCE

認知科學

Students in Cognitive Science can get in touch with: The study of memory, cognition, language, and human intelligence, and their neural underpinnings.

學生可在認知科學到: 記憶、認知、語言及人類智慧等

Cognitive psychologists address this question by studying different kinds of mental functions. Some of these functions are considered basic and include perception, attention and memory. Others are considered to be higher-order functions and to build on lower order ones. They include language, decision making, and problem solving.  

認知心理學家通過研究不同類型的心理功能來解釋這個問題,包括感知、注意力和記憶等較基本的功能,以及語言、決策和問題解決等較高級的功能。

Recent technical developments have enabled psychologists to explore how cognitive functions are represented in the brain. Techniques have been developed that track the activity of brain areas across time and that influence brain activity. This allows insights into how the mind encodes, represents, retrieves and manipulates information and helps psychologists formulate theories that enable us to dynamically predict mental and behavioral outcomes.


科技發展讓心理學家能夠探索認知功能在大腦中如何執行。有些技術能追蹤大腦不同區域活動如何隨時間演變,其他技術則影響或操控大腦活動。這些技術有助心理學家建立理論模型,以動態地預測心智和行為表現。
