Cognitive skills

Cognitive skills

Cognitive skills refer to the process of growth and change in intellectual/mental abilities such as thinking, logic and understanding. It includes the acquisition and consolidation of knowledge. Cognitive abilities are the brain-based skills we need to carry out for any task, from the simplest to the most complex. They have more to do with the mechanisms of how we learn, remember, problem-solve, and pay attention, rather than with any actual knowledge.
