Flashcards in Intro Cognition and Emotion Deck (27):
1

3 levels of sensation and processing

sensation
perception
high level cognition

2

2 fields of study from cognition are?

neuropsychology
social/clinical psych

3

What is localization of function?

lesion studies
neuroimaging linking structures to cognition

4

parietal lobe function?

somatic and visuospatial representations

5

what is lateralisation of function?

left: language
right: visuospatial
however this is oversimplification

6

What is Luria's brain behaviour theory?

3 units of CNS
brainstem regulation of arousal
post cortical: reception of sensory
frontal lobes: planning, executing

7

3 Luria Zones are?

primary: receiving
Secondary: perception
Tertiary: meaning of the input

8

do all cognitive domains have one-to-one structural relationships?

Nope. More like systems/networks

9

3 tenants of Pluripotentiality

1. each area operates with other areas
2. no area is singly responsible for behaviour
3. each area may play a role in many behaviours

10

2 big things that influence behaviour

cognition
emotion

11

What is emotion?

inferred behavioural state
conscious subjective feeling

12

psychophysiological state includes 3 things

consicous feelings
physiological aroundal
cognitive component

13

6 core emotions:

anger
fear
sadness
disgust
happiness
surprise

14

what neural system involved in emotion?

limbic system

15

limbic system includes?

amygdala
nucleus accumbens
septal area
orbitofrontal cortex

16

what is Kluver-Bucy syndrome?

No amygdala
loss of fear

17

amygdala dysfunction may be related to what clinicall?

depression
anxiety

18

what is the condition where there's no amygdala?

Kluver-Bucy Syndrome

19

lesion in orbitofrontal cortex clinical presentation

decreased expression of emotion

20

reduced orbitofrontal cortex volume found in patients with what disorders?

affect disorders
depression

21

hippocampus not just memory, also related to?

volume reduction in depression

22

James Lange Theory?

experience emotion in réponse to physiological change

23

Cannon Bard Theory?

1. experience emotion without physical expression
2. physiological changes not unique to specific emotions (eg. spinal cord lesion)

24

what is the primacy debate?

emotion before or after cognition

25

Zajonc said what?

affect and cognition separate, usually function together but can be independent too

26

What is cognitive appraisal?

cognitive processing directly impacts physiological/emotional stress response

27

how to use cognitive appraisal clinically?

relaxation and cognitive behavioural therapy for conditions
