with respect to your selected applied setting.
Here, consider how new developments or changes in your applied setting are creating new cognition-related challenges. For instance, you might note that increased use of online education is presenting new challenges to students with ADHD.
b) Identify your selected area of cognitive psychology (attention, learning, memory, language, or decision making) and appropriate foundational theories that apply to your selected problem. What are the foundational aspects of these theories, and how do they relate to your selected problem? Carrying through with the previous example, you would indicate that your area of focus is attention and identify related theories that can shed further light on the contemporary problem of attention demands on students with ADHD.
c) Describe performance issues in your selected applied setting based on limitations of human cognitive systems.
What are some of the specific issues related to your contemporary problem, the applied setting, and the limits of the human cognitive system ? Here, you Will further break down your contemporary problem and explain how the problem relates to the applied setting, what we know about cognition, And how this impacts performance.
d)Create a research question that addresses potential improvements to practices in the applied setting based on the strengths of human cognitive systems. Remember that your research question should address your contemporary problem.
For instance, in keeping with the previous example, you might ask,“How can changes to online learning platforms better support increased attention to course materials for students withADHD?
a)Evaluate the utility of the theories you identified when describing your problem with respect to their strengths and limitations. Here, revisit the theories you noted in critical element I, part
b. How do the theories you identified further explain the problems and performance issues you
identified? What are the strengths and limitations of each theory in helping to understand your identified problem?
b)Which particular theory offers the greatest utility for practitioners to apply in addressing real-world issues specific to the contemporary problem you selected? Defend your selection.
Interpretation of Research Findings:
Explain how each primary or secondary resource you selected supports your research question. This is where you will apply sound methodological principles (by following the prompts below, a–b) to qualify the research results and statistical findings.
a)How do the research results and statistical findings apply to your research question and your proposed improvements?
b) Explain the strengths and limitations of the research results and findings in supporting the research question. This is where you will explain how the research results and findings you have reviewed support your research question and identify specific gaps in the research. In other words, in reviewing your sources, is there sufficient support for this research question? This is also where you will identify what research does not yet exist that is necessary in supporting the application of your research question.
This is where you will look at your research question (critical element I, part
d) and determine what types of strategies or techniques you would use if you were to hypothesize improving upon the problem in your selected applied setting. Here, you might propose an experiment, a new program or initiative, or adoption of new tools/technologies. Remember, you are Not limited to a controlled experiment.
a)What socially responsible strategies and techniques could be used for improving upon human cognitive processes specific to your applied setting? Here, consider how you could implement your proposed solution in a way that does not further aggravate the problem or put participating parties at risk of new problems or performance issues.
b)What are the implications for using these strategies and techniques? Consider, who and what about the applied setting would be impacted by this proposed solution? What would change, and how might these changes be received?
a)What potential future direction do you see from implementation of your research specific to addressing the contemporary problem you cited in critical element I, part a? Here, consider how implementation of your proposed solution or improvement can add to the existing body of research on your topic. How might your proposed improvements and any follow-Up research prove interesting to other applied settings?

My particular area of interest in cognitive psychology is attention and memory. One great topic that can be drawn from these two is the process of information processing. When a person is attending to an activity selectively, they tend to ignore other stimuli although their attention can be distracted by something else such as a mention of your name or the ringing of a phone. Attention is wide and psychologists focus their interest on what makes a person attend to one thing and not the other , why people at times switch to other things that were earlier unattended and the number of things that a person can attend to at a particular time. Memory comes in two types, the short term and the long term memory. Short term memory or working memory is the capability of remembering something when distracted (Cowan, 1995).
Attention and memory can be applied in education and mental health respectively. In education, attention is vital as students need to pay attention to their tutors so that they can understand the concept of what they are being taught. They also need attention even in their personal studying. Memory becomes much applicable when health is involved. Many people do not realize that they have problems with their memory not until they visit a doctor and diagnose them with a problem.
The contemporary problems that relates to attention and memory in education and mental health are lack of concentration and memory loss. Some people have difficulties paying attention to what they are doing and in this particular case student in school not being able to concentrate in their studies and when the teacher is teaching. Memory loss is a medical condition that normally affects the elderly or people in depression.
Some of the potential research questions include:
- What can teachers and students do to boost the level of attention in classrooms?
- How people are with memories handled in care centers and what does the family members of victims need to know when taking care of their loved ones?
- What is the relationship between attention and memory?
