February 26, 2007 - Recursion: Whenever a function is defined by itself. Sentence is made up by a noun phrase and a verb phrase. S=NP VPS, Sentence=Noun Phrase, Verb Phrase, Sentence - Recursion allows us to create an infinitely long sentence because the grammar rules will still apply - Modular Theory: The brain processes are organized like the organs in your body, only performing one computation. These processes are very fast and automatic, tough to inhibit. Some people believe them to be innate. - Sensory neglect: Brain damage resulting in one of your senses being neglected. Still aware but just don’t see it. - Bottom up Processing: Processing happens when you receive sensory information and build it up, in reading seeing separate letters to create a word - Top down: More cognitively driven, in reading notice typos and missing vowels because you look at word first - Confirmation Bias: When trying to determine truth, look for evidence confirming your own theory. - Card Task: Don’t try to confirm own theory
