A related charge is that Evolutionary Psychology is defending the status quo regarding sex, race, intelligence differences, and so forth, by arguing that, first, there is nothing we can do, given that these differences are the result of our hard-wired cognitive mechanisms, and, second, there is no need to do something, because these differences, being the result of natural selection, are optimal solutions to longstanding adaptive problems.

Part of this stems from the fact that many models are only partially specified and implemented, if at all.” Crocker (1999, p. 213) argued that serial models have certain advantages over parallel models: “Such models have much to recommend them: (1) they are conceptually simpler, (2) they are computationally simpler, in that less processing and memory resources are required, and (3)…they make strong, testable predictions about human behaviour.” An approach such as the garden-path model may have certain advantages, but it also seems to have severe limitations.

If, as this model suggests, long-term learning and memory depend on the short-term memory system, then it is surprising that someone with a grossly deficient short-term memory system also has normal long-term memory. A state-of-the art gas chromatograph allow sensitive assessment of tissue levels of drugs. By examining the various theories and empirical research associated with these areas of inquiry, we will learn more about the prominent role experimentation has taken in cognitive psychology.

There are other situations in the real world in which people are exposed to a considerable amount of redundant information, which is also not true of most laboratory studies. Small illuminated lights were spread over a face, which was then filmed in the dark so that only the lights could be seen. However, several other researchers have argued and shown that the notion of “insight” is a key part of problem-solving theory (see Dominowski, 1981; Ellen, 1982; Lung & Dominowski, 1985; Metcalfe, 1986a; Ohlsson, 1992; Simon, 1986).
