Human Cognition course

Once information has undergone initial processing and connections with various parts of the
brain, it is stored in the cortical lobes. Functions performed in the ventral (emotion and affect)
and dorsal (cognition) parts of the hippocampus, once completed, transfer the longer-term forms
of memory to various locations in the brain. As more is learned of plasticity effects and how that
influences the formation of stable long-term memory, attention has been directed to studying the
connections, integrations, and sequencing of memory formation and retrieval. This becomes a
factor when examining the effects of retrograde and proactive aspects of memory retrieval. A
sorting out in the brain occurs during sleep and alpha states to settle where the fragments of
memory eventually reside.
Fortified with this knowledge gained during your Human Cognition course, you find yourself in
a situation where it may be applicable. You are assigned to develop a human-centric operation
that includes interaction with a neural system where new information is assimilated and
reorganized nearly instantly and must rely on the use of semantic memory from the operators.
Among the various challenges, one is that the operators will be multinational and multi-cultural.
Identify the variables influencing semantic organization or retrieval of knowledge by the
operators that must be addressed. Address potential semantic knowledge deficits or
categorization differences that may be experienced. You are asked if the human operators will be
able to keep pace with the system. Understanding that humans assimilate new information more
slowly, and may experience interference with prior knowledge (learned material), this requires
some thought on your part. What design or sequencing approach for preventing operational
problems would you suggest to the Project Manager that would address the potential human
delay and knowledge interference issues? You will need to choose a workplace setting of your
making to illustrate the approach. Prepare a briefing for the Project Manager that includes your
explanation of the problem and the approach you believe best resolves the issue.
Provide at least four (4) scholarly resources to support your approach.
Present this as a brief. Your brief should be approximately 800 words in length and needs
to be written in APA format 6th edition with an abstract and conclusion.

Human Factors Briefs are based on the course learning outcomes and module objectives. The
assignments will have you develop a brief that highlights human factors issues or principles related to
the module topics. These typically are posed as problems or situations in an applied setting and will
have you address human factors considerations focusing on the cognitive elements specified. You may
find examples and similar situations in the literature; however, you will need to become proficient in
using key words that encompass human factors principles and issues as you conduct your searches for
material. Critical thought and reasonable problem-solving skills will be essential. For this course, the
written products must:
• Be at least 800 words (be sure to include a cover page, abstract and conclusion), and references, with
Times New Roman font using 12-point size, all per APA format and style 6th edition.
• Consist of a title that reflects your topic, an introductory paragraph (Note: An introduction heading is
not used in APA format), sections that address the assignment requirements, and a summary paragraph.
• Incorporate scholarly sources to support your analyses and recommendations, beyond those included in
course readings.
• Include citations and references (properly formatted using APA style guidelines).
• Not use quotations from sources.
