Abstract: Cognition is one psychological process through which individuals come to know the ENVIRONMENT around them. Environment, in this sense, refers to all events and phenomena external to an individual. Cognition is a broad term that covers activities such as thinking and reasoning. Some writers draw a distinction between PERCEPTION and cognition, seeing perception as the impinging of external stimuli on the human sense organs and cognition as abstract mental activity that involves insight, deduction, imagery, and problem-solving. Such a distinction is somewhat artificial because cognitive factors can influence perception.
