In this presentation I'll highlight some of the elements of cognitive psychology with the mapping to software design.

I'd like to start off and spend about 5 minutes discussing the chunking and memory aspects of cognitive psychology. Next I'll spend about 10 minutes discussing analogies, how psychologists define them and then how they appear in code.

This will lead us to a single metric of software design and Ill round up with a quick discussion on how we could use the cognitive model .
