Information Processing Approach
Information Processing Approach is achieved via serial processing. And is also an example of a Bottom-up Approach.
Serial Processing: Previous step must be achieved beforehand.
1) Input/ Stimulus
2) Attention and Perception
3) Thoughts and Decisions
4) Response Output
(Input > Assimilation > Adoption + Accomodation > Output)
It would only be a Top-down Approach, if the process is influenced by the individuals previous experience.
Cognitive Psychology: Aiming to understand human cognition by observing the behaviour of people performing various cognitive tasks.
Cognitive Neuroscience: Using informaiton about behaviour and the brain to understand human cognition.
Bottom-up Processing: Processing that is directly influenced by environmental stimuli. (serial processing)
Serial Processing: One process is completed before the next one starts.
Parallel Processing: Processing in which two or more cognitive processors occur at the same time.
Top-down Processing: Stimlus processing that is influenced by factors such as an individuals past experiences.
