Contains a PowerPoint presentation covering an introduction to human, computer, and animal cognition. I use this for my AP Psychology class as part of my Cognition and Language unit.

Topics covered include:
Definition and examples of cognition
Human tendency to revert to prototypes for recognition
Problem solving techniques (heuristics, algorithms, and insight)
