Example text

Structuralism, which examined the basic components of consciousness, and functionalism, which focused on the purposes of consciousness, were psychology's two earliest schools of thought. The psychodynamic perspective calls attention to unconscious motives, conflicts, and defence mechanisms that influence our personality and behaviour.

During this same period, medical reports linked damage in different areas of patients' brains with various behavioural and mental impairments. For example, damage to a specific region on the brain's left side impaired people's ability to speak fluently. Mounting evidence of the relation between brain and behaviour supported the view that empirical methods of the natural sciences could also be used to study mental processes. Indeed, by the mid-1800s, German scientists were measuring people's sensory responses to many types of physical stimuli (for example, how the perceived loudness of a sound changes as its physical intensity increases).

Origins of the Cognitive Perspective As discussed earlier, structuralism and functionalism arose as two of psychology's earliest schools of thought. The structuralists attempted to identify the basic elements, or structure, of consciousness by using the method of introspection. In contrast, functionalists explored the purposes of consciousness. Other pioneering cognitive psychologists, such as Hermann Ebbinghaus (1850-1909) studied memory. By the 1920s German scientists had formed a school of thought known as Gestalt psychology, which examined how elements of experience are organized into wholes.
