•Cognition is defined as the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and the ability to understand through thought, experience, and senses.

•Cognition is all about your ability to “think”.

•Cognitive psychology was first established by an American psychologist Ulric Neisser in a book called “Cognitive Psychology” in 1967.

•In 1883, a man named Francis Galton gathered 100 people to tell about the image of their breakfast table, some had a lot of vivid pictures of it in their mind and some didn’t. BUILDING BLOCKS

•The way children understand spatial relationships like “in” and “on” is based on the language input on the people that take care of them and the child’s own play behavior.

•Parents help their children learn building blocks by stacking them for their child.

•Most children learn how to pronounce things and put the pieces together by their parents teaching them and sounding words off while using the building blocks. STUDY HABITS

•An article called Psychology Today Developing Study Habits Really Works stated that students who study at night tends to get worse grades than those students who study in the evenings. (Markman1)

•College students that have a high grade point average usually study by testing themselves, unlike those with a lower grade point average. TIPS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS
•Study in quite atmospheres
•Don’t spend all your time studying one topic
•Give yourself self-assessment tests
•Make flashcards
•Don’t overcrame yourself (take study breaks) What do neurotransmitters do?

The simplest term of what they do is to help transfer the impulse from one nerve ending to another.

Neurotransmitter are essentially like a switch. They are a biological switch which allows nerves to communicate with cells Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a mental illness characterized by extreme mood and behavior changes.
Many people with bipolar disorder cycle through extreme highs, called mania, and lows, called depression, and sometimes manic and depressive symptoms occur simultaneously.
Each individual responds differently to medications, so treatment can be frustrating and complicated. Serotonin

Creativity has been pegged to conductive environments, perfect collaborators, personality traits, serendipity, and even the process of religion.
Something About Myself (SAM) - measuring artistic inclination, intelligence, individuality, sensitivity, initiative, and self strength.
What Kind of Person Are You (WKOPAY) - measuring imagination, appeal to authority, self-confidence, inquisitiveness, and awareness of others.
A test developed by Harvard psychology researcher Theresa Amabile called the Consensual Assessment Technique (CAT) attempts to measure and assess domain-specific creativity. 1.) Identifing the problem: While it may seem like an obvious step, identifing the problem is not always as simple as it sounds.

2.) Defining the problem: After the problem has been identified, it is important to fully define the problem so that it can be solved.

3.) Forming a strategy: The next step is to develop a strategy to solve the problem.

4.) Organizing Information: Before coming up with a solution, we need to first organize the available information. 5.) Allocating Resources: Of course, we don't always have ulimited money, time and other resources to solve a problem.

6.) Monitoring Progress: Effective problem solvers tend to monitor their progress as they work towards a solution.

7.) . Evaluating the Results: After a solution has been reached, it is important to evaluate the results to determine if it is the best possible solution to the problem. Start! Finished! Treatment

Lithium is naturally occurring salt that has mood stabilizing effects in the treatment of bipolar disorder. It's most effective for the mania of bipolar disorder that can also prevent the depression. However, it takes a while for lithium to become effective.

GABA Motor Behaviors

Benzodiazepines and GABA
GABA is the brain "quietening" or tranquillizing neurotransmitter. Benzodiazepines and related drugs enhance the effect of GABA.
