  Amazon.ca: Social Cognition: Books: Susan T Fiske,Shelley E Taylor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
In basic research, social cognition theories of attribution, psychological control, social schemata, attention, person memory, and social inference have become central to the field.
Section one deals with the "what" of social cognition; two, with the "how"; three, with the cross-fertilization of cognitive psychology and social psychology; and four, with the applications of social cognition research to the real world.
Without question "Social Cognition" is the standard, state-of-the-art resource for providing a road map to the fullest and clearest understanding of not only social thinking processes but also the creatures who do the processing.

 Social Cognition, Emotions, and the Psychology of Writing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
It stands to reason then that cognitive psychology would view emotion in two principal ways: as a dysfunctional response to experience that needed treatment and was therefore a clinical matter, or as part of the softer of the psychological subspecialties.
Social learning themes versus information processing themes, the group versus the individual, the public versus the private, the affective and personal versus the rhetorical and social: social constructionists pay attention to the collective act; cognitivists work with the individual act.
I am not sure whether it means that the cognitive paradigm has finally made a place in its system for the interpersonal life, or whether it means that the distinction between the cognitive and the social (Hayes 102; Potter and Wetherell 6) is simply more palatable than that between the cognitive and emotional.

 Social Cognition...Psyhist.com
Social cognition is the name for both a branch of psychology that studies the cognitive processes involved in social interaction, and an umbrella term for the processes themselves.
Particularly, social cognition is concerned with how such information is represented and how it interacts with, and is handled by, more fundamental cognitive processes such as memory, attention, perception and problem solving.
Social cognition came to prominence with the rise of cognitive psychology in the late 1960s and early 1970s and is now the dominant model and approach in mainstream social psychology.

 NIH Guide: SOCIAL COGNITION AND AGING
The social cognitive paradigm concerns the ways in which mental representations of social events, societal and cultural norms and personal characteristics influence behavior, reasoning, emotion and motivation.
Specifically, the approach addresses attributions, self and social goals, mental representations of the self and others, and the role of social facilitation in decision-making, memory and judgment.
Research suggests that complex cognitive functioning-involved in coping, everyday problem-solving and decision-making in health and social domains-depends not only on basic cognitive mechanisms, but also on socially-derived content and organization of existing knowledge structures as well as on socially-derived emotional and motivational influences on performance.

 Social cognition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cognitive representations of social objects are referred to as schemas.
Social cognition researchers are also interested in how new information is integrated into pre-established schemas, especially when that information is contrary with those pre-established schemas.
Social cognition researchers are also interested in studying the regulation of activated schemas.

 Social Cognition In Developmental Language Disorders and High-Level Autism
The study of social cognition has been concerned both with the nature of social knowledge and with the nature of cognitive processes involved in the perception and interpretation of the social world (Ostrom 1984).
The aim of this study was to further clarify this link by examining some aspects of social cognition in groups of children with 'phonologic-syntactic disorder' (P); and 'semantic-pragmatic disorder' (S); in a group of children with high-level autism (A): and in a control group of normal children (C).
In recent years a picture of the cognitive consequences of damage to the amygdala has begun to emerge and the reported effects of restricted bilateral amygdala lesions in humans bear some similarity to the profile of results reported for the semantic-pragmatic and autistic groups in the present study.

 CAS 992 Syllabus - Spring, 1997
Social cognitive research has failed to acknowledge the important ways that our thoughts about ourselves and other people are formed and shaped in a rich interactive and communicative environment.
For example, people often discuss their social perceptions with others or at least anticipate doing so, and social cognition is frequently constrained by norms regarding appropriate social discourse.

 Introduction - Shared Cognition in Organizations: The Management of Knowledge
Using such rubrics as socially-shared cognition, distributed cognition, and contextualized cognition, investigators are focusing on cognition as an interpersonal as well as an intrapersonal process.
Without negating the importance of information processing at the individual level, social psychologists (as well as developmental and organizational psychologists, anthropologists, sociologists, and educational researchers) are exploring the implications of viewing cognition as a fundamentally social activity.
At about the same time the area of socially-shared cognition was beginning to develop, an interesting intellectual migration was occurring, with social psychologists, both newly minted and well-established, moving from psychology departments in colleges of arts and sciences to organization behavior departments in business schools.

The social cognition learning model asserts that culture is the prime determinant of individual development.
In short, according to the social cognition learning model, culture teaches children both what to think and how to think.
Cognitive development results from a dialectical process whereby a child learns through problem-solving experiences shared with someone else, usually a parent or teacher but sometimes a sibling or peer.

 Cognition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The concept of cognition is closely related to such abstract concepts as mind, reasoning, perception, intelligence, learning, and many others that describe numerous capabilities of human mind and expected properties of artificial or synthetic intelligence.
Cognition is an abstract property of advanced living organisms; therefore, it is studied as a direct property of a brain or of an abstract mind on subsymbolic and symbolic levels.
The term "cognition" is also used in a wider sense to mean the act of knowing or knowledge, and may be interpreted in a social or cultural sense to describe the emergent development of knowledge and concepts within a group that culminate in both thought and action.

In Social Cognition and Schizophrenia, editors Patrick W. Corrigan and David L. Penn present a theoretically important and clinically relevant frame for better understanding this thought disorder, which commonly wreaks havoc on all areas of functioning.
While schizophrenia has long been understood to be both a cognitive disorder and a social one, integrating social and cognitive research approaches has not been simple.
Furthermore, a person's relationship to social stimuli is interactive, requiring a cultural familiarity that persons with schizophrenia often lack as a result of their isolation from others.

Social cognition has its roots in social psychology which attempts "to understand and explain how the thoughts, feelings, and behavior of individuals are influenced by the actual, imagined, or implied presence of others" (Allport, 1985, p.
Festinger's (1957) cognitive-dissonance theory, Bem's (1972) self-perception theory (see Greenwald, 1975), and Weiner's (1985) attribution theory are additional examples of how the perspective of social cognition has been applied to the study of the learning process.

A natural progression is found in Kunda's style, where she presents a topic, draws on some familiar day-to-day experiences, and presents the experiments and research that support it.
She explains contradictions and allows the reader to make his/her own conclusions and inferences concerning topics like hot cognition, influences of mood on memory, subliminal processing, false-memories, and influences of culture on cognition.
She, herself, did extensive work in the area of cognitive science and since her passing, will be missed by many as her work was incredibly innovative and interesting.
