Perception and Action: Physiology
Psychologists have long recognized the close connection between perceiving objects and in-teracting with them, but the details of this link between perception and action have become clearer as a result of physiological research that began in the 1980s. This research has shown that there are two processing streams in the brain—one involved with perceiving objects, and the other involved with locating and taking action toward these objects. This physio-logical research involves two methods: brain ablation—the study of the effect of removing parts of the brain in animals, and neuropsychology—the study of the behavior of people with brain damage, which we described in Chapter 2 (see page 38). Both of these methods demonstrate how studying the functioning of animals and humans with brain damage can reveal important principles about the functioning of the normal (intact) brain.”

Synthesis Paper Instructions
The purpose of the synthesis paper is to integrate current peer-reviewed research on cognitive psychology. Students should evaluate the research and describe how it is related to cognitive psychology.
Describe an area of life (e.g., academic, professional) to which the research is applicable, using it to support your recommendation and conclusions.
The paper must be written in essay format and include proper APA-style citations and a reference page. No title or abstract page is needed. Research articles used for the paper are to be uploaded separately from the synthesis paper to the appropriate Canvas link provided.
