Muzafer Sherif, one of the founders of social psychology, stands out as one of the main forces behind its growth in the in the 30's (Baron, Byrne 1997). Ciencia cognitiva Se denomina ciencia cognitiva al estudio interdisciplinario de cómo la información es representada y transformada en la mente/cerebro. Es el conjunto de disciplinas que surgen de la convergencia transdisciplinaria de investigaciones científicas y tecnológicas, en torno a los fenómenos funcionales y emergentes, dados a partir de las actividades neurofisiológicas del encéfalo y del sistema nervioso, incorporados, y que típicamente se les denomina como: mente y comportamiento.[1] La naturaleza de las investigaciones cognitivas es necesariamente transdisciplinaria (es decir, tanto inter como multidisciplinarias), surgiendo en un primer momento a partir de disciplinas autónomas como la lingüística, la psicobiología cognitiva y la inteligencia artificial, y añadiéndose en una etapa más reciente la neurociencia y la antropología cognitiva.

Milgram’s Experiment on Obedience to Authority What Milgram’s Shock Experiments Really Mean In 2010 I worked on a Dateline NBC television special replicating classic psychology experiments, one of which was Stanley Milgram's famous shock experiments from the 1960s. We followed Milgram's protocols precisely: subjects read a list of paired words to a “learner” (an actor named Tyler), then presented the first word of each pair again. Each time Tyler gave an incorrect matched word, our subjects were instructed by an authority figure (an actor named Jeremy) to deliver an electric shock from a box with toggle switches that ranged in 15-volt increments up to 450 volts (no shocks were actually delivered). In Milgram's original experiments, 65 percent of subjects went all the way to the end. We had only two days to film this segment of the show (you can see all our experiments at so there was time for just six subjects, who thought they were auditioning for a new reality show called What a Pain!

The Science of Sleep: Dreaming, Depression, and How REM Sleep Regulates Negative Emotions by Maria Popova “Memory is never a precise duplicate of the original… it is a continuing act of creation. Dream images are the product of that creation.” For the past half-century, sleep researcher Rosalind D. Cartwright has produced some of the most compelling and influential work in the field, enlisting modern science in revising and expanding the theories of Jung and Freud about the role of sleep and dreams in our lives. The Perils of Obedience ~ An Essay Response A staple for first year psychology students is a discussion of the famous Milgram experiment . Dr. Stanley Milgram was a social psychologist at Yale University deeply interested in the behavior of obedience. The Nazi war crimes trials in particular inspired his exploration of how humans develop the capacity to commit atrocities, and then excuse themselves because they were only “following orders”. The Doctor devised a method to test ordinary people to see if they would commit acts against their conscience.

Rethinking the Placebo Effect: How Our Minds Actually Affect Our Bodies by Maria Popova The startling physiological effects of loneliness, optimism, and meditation. In 2013, Neil deGrasse Tyson hosted a mind-bending debate on the nature of “nothing” — an inquiry that has occupied thinkers since the dawn of recorded thought and permeates everything from Hamlet’s iconic question to the boldest frontiers of quantum physics. That’s precisely what New Scientist editor-in-chief Jeremy Webb explores with a kaleidoscopic lens in Nothing: Surprising Insights Everywhere from Zero to Oblivion (public library | IndieBound) — a terrific collection of essays and articles exploring everything from vacuum to the birth and death of the universe to how the concept of zero gained wide acceptance in the 17th century after being shunned as a dangerous innovation for 400 years. As Webb elegantly puts it, “nothing becomes a lens through which we can explore the universe around us and even what it is to be human. It reveals past attitudes and present thinking.”
