Functions - Psychology Dictionary of Arguments | |||

Functions: I. A function in mathematics is a relation between a set of inputs and a set of outputs, where each input is related to exactly one output. The set of inputs is called the domain of the function. Functions can be represented by formulas, graphs, or tables. For example, the function f(x) = x^2 is represented by the formula y = x^2, which takes any number as input and returns its square as output. The graph of this function is a parabola.
II. In psychology, functions refer to the various mental processes and behaviors that enable individuals to adapt and interact effectively with their environment. These include cognitive functions like perception, memory, and reasoning, as well as emotional and social functions like regulating emotions, forming relationships, and making decisions._____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
