Examine The Influences Of Gestalt Psychology On Modern Cognitive Psychology
For this week’s assignment, imagine that you are delivering a presentation to your graduate school colleagues on the history and influences of Gestalt on the major areas of cognitive psychology today. Prepare a PowerPoint presentation that introduces the main theorists, theories, and some of the research avenues taken by Gestalt psychologists. Conclude with a brief overview of the influence of Gestalt on cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and Gestalt therapy.
Your PowerPoint should contain citations where necessary, an engaging slide design with illustrations, and transitions and animations where you think necessary. Remember, the purpose of a PowerPoint is to support the presentation that is embodied in your speakers’ notes, retaining the interest of your audience and moving them along the logical progression from your introduction to your conclusion.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
Support your presentation with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 200-350 words for each slide
Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate.
