Schemas (schemata) - Extremely effective cognitive tools for understanding the world o Top-down processing (based on inference) o Bottom-up processing (based on raw data) - Allow us to automatically process everyday situations with little or no effort o Example: crosswalk, tree, door o Benefit: no mental energy drain
