Week 4: Evolutionary Perspectives on Cognition
W4: Evolutionary Perspectives on Cognition
Our behaviors are affected by many factors, including the way in which we receive and process information. The knowledge, awareness, and perceptual processes we have can all be influenced by both external and internal occurrences. Albert Ellis, in his discussion of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, provides us with food for thought in understanding how our internal discussions, or self-talk, serve as a buffer in behavioral change at the emotional level. From an evolutionary perspective, behavior may develop from knowledge, awareness, perception, labeling, and retention, among other forces.

In addition, discuss how you identify changes you have seen in your development, noting the specific theory that is most closely related to your developmental changes.
