How important is the distinction between hot and cold cognition?

Answered by Hans-Ulrich Wittchen

The current status of basic research does not allow us to pinpoint with sufficient precision which complex mechanisms are involved in these two types of cognition. The differentiation of ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ cognition, which are in fact interacting, is at this point an imperfect heuristical model. It is likely that increased research activities will gradually identify potential differences between these two classes of cognition.
