The goal is to develop object permanence; achieves basic understanding of causality, time, and space. Pre-operational stage Toddler and Early Childhood 2—7 years Symbols or language skills are present; memory and imagination are developed; nonreversible and nonlogical thinking; shows intuitive problem solving; begins to see relationships; grasps concept of conservation of numbers; egocentric thinking predominates. Concrete operational stage Elementary and Early Adolescence 7—12 years Logical and systematic form of intelligence; manipulation of symbols related to concrete objects; thinking is now characterized by reversibility and the ability to take the role of another; grasps concepts of the conservation of mass, length, weight, and volume; operational thinking predominates nonreversible and egocentric thinking Formal operational stage Adolescence and Adulthood 12 years and on Logical use of symbols related to abstract concepts; Acquires flexibility in thinking as well as the capacities for abstract thinking and mental hypothesis testing; can consider possible alternatives in complex reasoning and problem solving.
According tNeisser, FBM may simply be a narrative convention. He explained this idea by saying that flashbulb memories are governed by the conventions of a storytelling schema, following a specific structure.
In other words, when we recount important events, we do by using conventional storytelling techniques. To investigate the accuracy of flashbulb memory Methods: Participants were asked to report on the circumstances of their learning about the challenger space disaster on Connection of study to question This thus suggests that FBM are not reliable as influenced by post-event information.
To investigate the accuracy of FBM Methods: After five months, memories were vague, and subject to systematic biases. Found that memories were a blend of their own real experiences, and information that had come after the event.
To test the accuracy of flashbulb memory Methods: Participants were interviewed and asked questions about the explosion of the challenger a few days after 9 months Also asked on personal memories Results: It was found that there were discrepancies over time between what was recalled shortly after the accident and what was remembered nine months later.
There were inaccuracies in the memories. FBM can be forgotten and thus cannot be considered as a special memory, but are products of ordinary memory mechanisms. The type of methodology used was interview thus questions asked in the experiment were not focused thus could vary from participant to participant Weaknesses: Conclusion In conclusion, FBM affected by emotion can influence the recall of memories.
However, it is hard to test accuracy of memories as the evidence is very retrospective Overall Strengths: The majority of research into flashbulb memories is naturalistic.
Therefore there is high in ecological validity. However, the studies can lack reliability as they cannot really be replicated. Therefore, we cannot test to see how consistent the results are.cognitive processes that presuppose the availability of knowledge and put it to use attending, attention the process whereby a person concentrates on some features of the environment to the (relative) exclusion of others.

A guide to the eight cognitive processes / eight functions. What's a cognitive distortion and why do so many people have them? Cognitive distortions are simply ways that our mind convinces us of something that isn't.
Attention is the cognitive process that makes it possible to position ourselves towards relevant stimuli and consequently respond to it. There are different types of attention including arousal, focused attention, sustained attention, selective attention, alternating attention, and divided attention.
