I'm new to this site so I may mess up here and there with the question process.
I need to come up with an interactive exercise for a class to demonstrate cognition. The problem is, I find cognition to be very complex and I have trouble thinking of one.
Some ideas I currently have in mind are:
1) Telling the class some false facts or showing them some fake news and having them debate which is real.
2) Something along the lines of a slot machine where extravagant sounds and lights play when you win something, however, nothing happens when you lose. Showing how we are more likely to remember the extravagant sounds/lights.
3) Asking the class to describe to me an object. Then ask the class to describe the same object to me without the use of certain words and concepts.
I am very clueless on this matter (cognition) so any help would be appreciated.
