3 levels of sensation and processing
high level cognition
2 fields of study from cognition are?
What is localization of function?
neuroimaging linking structures to cognition
parietal lobe function?
somatic and visuospatial representations
what is lateralisation of function?
however this is oversimplification
What is Luria's brain behaviour theory?
3 units of CNS
brainstem regulation of arousal
post cortical: reception of sensory
frontal lobes: planning, executing
3 Luria Zones are?
Tertiary: meaning of the input
do all cognitive domains have one-to-one structural relationships?
Nope. More like systems/networks
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

volume reduction in depression
James Lange Theory?
experience emotion in réponse to physiological change
Cannon Bard Theory?
1. experience emotion without physical expression
2. physiological changes not unique to specific emotions (eg. spinal cord lesion)
what is the primacy debate?
emotion before or after cognition
Zajonc said what?
affect and cognition separate, usually function together but can be independent too
What is cognitive appraisal?
