Good Will Hunting - Behavioral Theories

The mental process of acquiring knowledge by the use of reasoning, intuition, or perception is referred to as cognition. This refers to the mental processes involved in gaining knowledge and comprehension which include thinking, knowing, remembering, judging, and problem-solving. Cognition is responsible for the functions of the brain that encompass language, imagination, planning and perception. The cognitive perspective revolves around the human body's mental functions such as memory, perception, and attention. The human brain is able to process information, store data and then have an input and output procedure. The parts of our memory, the views of our perception, and the things we give our attention to are what shape our cognitive processes, which then in turn shapes our personality. Memory consists of different stages in which information is encoded, stored, and then retrieved. The encoding part of our memory is where the information is received and then attended to. The storage part is where the information that is received is retained and then the retrieval is where the information is then recollected from.
