Study Questions I Cognitive Bases of Behavior September 24, 2008 1) What are the essential features and contributions of cognitive psychology, cognitive neuropsychology, and cognitive neuroscience to the overall domain of cognitive science? 2) What are the fundamental assumptions of the information-processing model to cognition? How do models of serial processing differ from models based on parallel distributed processing? 3) Describe Marr’s “three levels of explanation” for cognitive theory and how they are important in theory building in cognitive science. Give a concrete example of each of the three levels as they relate to the problem of object recognition. 4) Marr (who liked to think in ‘3’s) proposed three representations within the visual system that represented the extraction of different types of information from the visual array. Describe each of these representations (primal sketch, 2.5-D, 3-D) centering on the type of information each encodes and the likely psychological tasks each would allow us to perform.
