From the Paper:

"Cognitive psychology is the methodical study of human cognition. In essence, cognitive psychology analyzes how information and knowledge is applied to everyday life. Cognitive psychology is related closely to cognitive science. While cognitive science includes five fields of study that appear unrelated, an interdisciplinary approach is employed that includes research information from the fields of philosophy, anthropology, linguistics, neuroscience, and artificial intelligence; cognitive psychology is central to the advancement of each of these domains. The development of modern cognitive psychology was driven by the United States introduction into World War II, but cognitive psychology emerged as a discipline between 1950 and 1970. The effects of the decline of behaviorism on cognitive psychology were dramatic and the result of the inability of behaviorism to explain the richness of the human mind. From the development of technology and the decline of behaviorism came a better understanding of cognition and cognitive psychology."
