'''Cognitive processes''' (aka '''mental functions''' or '''[[Mental operations]]''' ) are terms often used interchangeably (although not always correctly so, the term ''cognitive'' tends to have specific implications - see [[cognitive]], [[cognition]] and [[cognitivism]]) which indicate such functions or processes as [[perception]], [[introspection]], [[memory]], [[imagination]], [[conception]], [[belief]], [[reasoning]], [[volition]], and [[emotion]].
