information processing model

in cognitive psychology, the idea of breaking down human behavior into 3 primary systems: perception, cognition, and motor control (action). These systems are similar to the computer’s input, processing, and output. Cognition, in this model, can do hidden mental processing (as opposed to the prevailing behaviorist approach before cognitive psychology came around) and can be measured and studied as an information processing system.
