This week, you read about different ways in which problem solving occurs. You also learned how factors (such as creativity, brain activation, or alcohol consumption) influence problem solving. Based on what you have learned, discuss the impact of human cognitive functioning on problem solving when people face real-world contemporary problems. You might look at lifestyle problems (like lack of sleep) or biological issues (like changes in brain activation). Next, consider the role of decision making on cognitive functioning when faced with real-world problems. Consider how someone might make a decision, using theories of decision making, when faced with the problem you explored. For example, would they use heuristics or deductive reasoning? Discuss the potential outcomes of the real-world problem and the possible decisions in terms of cognitive psychology.
In your responses to your peers, compare and contrast your ideas and strategies to those of your peers. In what settings do you see your peers’ strategies working best? What alternative decision-making processes or methods could your peer have used?
Throughout the course, you have been exposed to theories in cognitive psychology and have been asked to use those theories to solve problems and evaluate human cognition. Based on what you have learned, discuss the role you think cognitive psychology plays in understanding human behavior and interactions. How has this field advanced our understanding of human cognition and behavior? How has cognitive psychology helped us to create socially responsible strategies for improving cognition? What directions do you think the field will take next, and how will that research be important in solving contemporary problems or real-world issues?
