Cognition – How Your Mind Can Amaze and Betray You: Crash Course Psychology #15



Want more videos about psychology every Monday and Thursday? Check out our sister channel SciShow Psych at

We used to think that the human brain was a lot like a computer; using logic to figure out complicated problems. It turns out, it’s a lot more complex and, well, weird than that. In this episode of Crash Course Psychology, Hank discusses thinking & communication, solving problems, creating problems, and a few ideas about what our brains are doing up there.

    FOR MY BENEFIT
    *Concepts- similar groupings
    *Prototype- mental concepts of things or the best fit idea of something
    *Algorithms- a way to solve a problem that grantees a solution
    *Huristic- problem solving rule of thumb that may result in a faster result but more errors
    *Confirmation bias- searching for researching or ideas that confirm ones prior beliefs
    *Availability Heuristic- a mental shortcut that come to mind when considering an event or object

    What's with the Superman hate, I personally thought the "Man of Steel" movie was fine.

    Do prototypes only apply to language? Or would we still create prototypes in our minds if we didn’t have words?
