Is studying cognitive functions difficult?
How can I study cognitive science so I can understand better how the human brain helps us in our every day lives? #science #research
Psychology has often been seen as an "easy" subject, particularly at high-school level, but I think many with mainly a humanities background struggle later on as the subject becomes a more scientifically and statistically rigorous.
On the other hand, for me of a scientific background, I found the vagueness and impreciseness of certain concepts hard to justify with my analytical mind. I think generally where it's branded as cognitive science, it tends to be better on that front than where branded as psychology, but there is still always an element of overlap into more fuzzy topics reliant on interpretation and opinion rather than definitive data; and that's something I find difficult.
