What is the difference between a concept and a schema? Is one a subset of the other?
You are correct. Schemas are the larger categories, and concepts are specific examples that fit within schemas. For example, you have a schema for “human being” and a concept (more fine-tuned) concept for a “human being in the 19th century.”
Yup! You’re right! Just make sure you remember that, although both concept and schema are the ways of processing information more efficiently by our brain, processing of schema takes longer time as a schema activates more nodes or networks to make sense of an event or items!
