Critiquing Research in the Field of Cognitive Psychology
Studying mental processes is not an easy task. Early psychologists, for example, used the introspective approach to study perception, however, that method did not always yield the desired results. Pioneers in cognitive psychology focused on integrating a scientific approach to studying mental processes. However, many cognitive researchers still ask individuals to explain the reasons behind their behavior.
Nisbett and Wilson (1977) analyzed several studies examining higher-level cognitive processes such as decision-making in which the researchers found people may not necessarily be consciously aware of the behavior leading to their decisions. Nisbett and Wilson discovered that these studies revealed that people were aware of the result of their decisions, but were unaware of the mental processes involved. Rather than using an introspective approach, Nisbett and Wilson concluded that introspection might be helpful in developing theory, but an empirical approach was necessary to test the hypotheses that were generated. To do so requires usage of specific research designs
This week, you are asked to locate research in cognitive psychology that relates to your Signature Assignment. Some approaches used today include a psychobiological approach in which the relationship between cognition and brain structure and function is examined. Another approach is process-tracing in which the researcher records the focus of a participant’s attention over a set period. This approach often examines the process involved as a participant tackles a task. Researchers may track eye movement, computer usage, and even ask participants to keep a diary that is later coded and analyzed. A relatively new approach used in cognitive psychology today is computer simulations. In this, researchers may input a theory into a computer and then have the computer simulate actual human behavior.
