[Get Solution] Psychology Short Questions
Complete the thought questions about Unit 1 material. Each response should be no more than 1-2 paragraphs (1 is sufficient). Full credit for thoughtful responses that address each part of the question. Partial credit for partial responses (varies by a question). 1. Biological factors are an important source of development and include Genes, brain structures, neurotransmitters, hormones, etc. Using your current knowledge, describe how two of these factors might be relevant to cognitive development (i.e., how might these explain why cognition changes over the lifespan). Try to focus on specific cognitive skills, processes, or capacities. 2. Pick one of these two cognitive processes: Attention or Memory (any type). Describe how you expect this process to change (or not change!) across the following age periods: Infancy, Middle Childhood (6-12 yrs), Emerging Adulthood (18-25 yrs), and Older Adulthood (60+ yrs). Be sure to refer to each age period in your response. 3. What kind of cognitive abilities would you expect in a preverbal infant? (under 12 months old) Also, what cognitive abilities would you NOT expect in a preverbal infant? For each question, include at least 2 different cognitive abilities. 4. Think about your own cognitive development (across multiple cognitive abilities). Do you think you are at your peak function? Or, did you already pass your peak? OR, is the peak still ahead of you? Now, consider separate cognitive abilities. Which one has already peaked (i.e., you were better at a younger age)? Which one is still improving? PLEASE SUMMARIZE IN YOUR OWN WORDS AND KNOWLEDGE, THESE ARE HOMEWORK QUESTIONS NOT A ESSAY. PLEASE DONT CITE ANYTHING. Thank you.
