Human Cognition

Draft - 1.1 Initiated 7/8/04  Updated 05/21/12

Purpose:

Human cognition is central to clinical decision making. Clinical information involves histories that can be biased by the manner in which questions are asked, vague clinical signs that are assessed with several senses and diagnostic laboratory tests that are not perfect. If clinicians have a fundamental understanding of the process of cognition and inherent weaknesses in the process, they will be better able to compensate for weaknesses in this process and arrive at better clinical decisions in the long run. The purpose of this webpage is to provide a collection of links to on-line materials.

Notes from others on materials for inclusion -

George Lakoff's book (or at least the first chapter) "Moral Politics" or if not that the introduction to "Don't think of an Elephant" (the former is more intellectual).

I would also encourage you to check out Judith Williamson, "Decoding Advertisements: Ideology and Meaning in Advertising."
"30-second politics" by Montague Kern is also a good book on the subject. Also, "Ritual, Politics and Power" by David Kertzer offers an anthropologist's view of the role of, well, rituals in politics and power.
