We must flip #7 to make sure there is a vowel on other side, to falsify the task Thus, we must flip over “a”/drinking beer, and “7”/16 year old Logic rule : P then Q, does not imply if Q then P Ex: a baseball hat is a type of hat, but a hat doesn’t need to be a baseball hat it can be different hats they say it fits their definition of module cause: Domain specificity of the wason selection task only occurs since we evolved a way to check if person is cheating we can only get the problem right if it’s in a word problem where someone is doing something wrong (drinking beer when they shouldn’t) Mental Modules brain is not made of mental modules it’s made of neurons mental modules by Jerry Fodor violates everything we know now

o domain specificity: wrong , we can re-qire the brain o information encapsulation: wrong , the brain can talk to other parts, top down vs bottom up effects o fixed neural architecture: wrong , we have neural plasticity (brain keeps developing as we grow, it doesn’t stop) Principles of Evolutionary Psychology (these 5 principles are wrong) principle 2) is not necessarily right, we don’t know THAT much about evolutionary history as much as we think we do principle 4) is wrong because natural selection can take existing systems and make them evolve to solve different things tooby and cosmides claim that our brains are ancestral, NOT TRUE

    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.
