PB 5 Examine one interaction between cognition & physiology in terms of behaviour. Evaluate two relevant studies. Cognition – mental process of obtaining and processing knowledge and understanding through thinking. Physiology – internal biological mechanisms of living organisms Amnesia – the inability to learn or retrieve information that has been stored in memory Alzheimer’s disease - Degenerative & irreversible disease of the brain that affects memory functions, mainly episodic and semantic, Interaction – both behaviours of AD and amnesia is caused by physiological cause of brain damage which affects memory (cognition) Both behaviours affect EM and SM but amnesia more episodic memory is affect than semantic Episodic memory – linked to certain time and place Semantic memory – used for information Amnesia has two types – anterograde (inability to form new memories) and retrograde (inability to recall old memories) Amnesia interacts directly with physiology because caused by damage hippocampi region of brain. AD interacts directly with physiology as damage to mainly the Medial temporal lobe of brain .Therefore, the physiological effects influences or affects cognition, particularly memory Schwindt and Black (2007), Mosconi et al (2009) demonstrate damage to MTL and parts like hippocampus can create the behaviour of AD

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
