Research on Cognitive Psychology
Cognitive psychology systematically studies the mind and how an individual functions
mentally (Dawson, 2022). One can achieve this by studying a particular reason, the decisions they
make, if they can be attentive for a particular period, and if they have memory—the type of
language they use to communicate. Modern peer-reviewed research on cognitive psychology has
firmly and clearly stated that people could define the brain as a multifaceted computing system or,
in other words, complex. Another research that is related to cognitive psychology is one by the
International Journal of School and Cognitive Psychology.
This peer-reviewed journal was implemented to give young talents a chance to showcase
their skills to the world. It would be achieved by providing young individuals with a platform
encouraging them to globalize their talents even more. This research is related to cognitive
psychology in that so many young individuals, especially those in schools, have skills but lack the
necessary resources to showcase them. (Binz & Schulz, 2022). Because of this, some of them may
go through depression and may lack the courage to even ask for help from others. Ultimately this
might affect their reasoning and even their decisions, as in some cases, we see that they even seek
comfort from the abuse of drugs. In the worst outcomes, they can attempt suicide. To avoid this,
the journal has researched how to help young talents. Incorporating cognitive psychology would
not only achieve its goals and objectives but also improve the lives of many young individuals.
Another goal and objective of the journal are to encourage young talents to know where
their interests lie. In doing so, they could research those particular areas of interest, gain more
knowledge, and even have more passion in pursuing them. Through the improvement of
technology over the years, it is easy for one to be known by many individuals worldwide. So, the
journal encourages young individuals that even though it would provide high standards in the
publication, to at least ensure that their talents can be accessed by individuals who are not near
them online, and this is through the use of technology. By this, they are in a position to gain more
audience and even be open to new opportunities.
This research is applicable in the academic area of life, where we see that some students
have the passion and gift to write not, particularly in the same field, but lack the necessary support
to achieve this. From the research, I would recommend that learning institutions at least offer help
to the less privileged and support them not only in the scholarship programs but also in bringing
their hidden talents into existence. It would boost the confidence of the young student, and they
would not feel neglected. Psychologically and mentally, this would greatly help the young talent
and the entire society.
In conclusion, an individual’s mental health is of utmost importance and should be taken
very seriously. It is crucial that if one notices something is off with their close family, friends, or
even a coworker, mentally try their very best to help them before it is too late. The research article

How Metaphorical Thinking Influence Information Processing Ability: A
Study using EEG Technique
Department of Educational Psychology, Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India
Metaphorical thinking is a soft thinking technique connecting two different universes of meaning. The human
mind tends to look for similarities. Human cognition is conscious as well as sub-conscious, concrete as well as
abstract, intuitive enabling an individual to process knowledge, attention, memory, problem solving, decision making,
reasoning, computation etc. through the senses they perceive. Hence, metaphorical thinking acts as a catalyst to
promote all these processes mentioned. The present study is focused to find out the influence of metaphorical
thinking amounting to neuronal activity in the prefrontal regions of the brain where most of the learning takes place.
The present study is designed by recording the EEG data while the teachers were asked to read the metaphorical
thinking statements incorporated in the lesson plan. Metaphorical thinking promotes active thinking in the subjects
though thinking is always an integral activity of the living brain.
Keywords: Metaphorical thinking; Brain; Cognitive effect
Metaphors are quite often used in language communication
unconsciously throughout the world without any discrimination. The
use of metaphors in language communication promotes semantic
understanding of the context. For example, if a language teacher
is explaining the concept of adjectives to his/her class by stating a
sentence “Priya’s skin is as soft as silk” here the students understands
the adjective “soft” by linking skin with silk though they are completely
different in their meaning. The main objective in the present research
study is to establish the fact that thinking metaphorically could help
an individual to build cognitive structures which in turn promote
information processing ability. Therefore, the research study is
designed in …
