lets brain storm

I’m trying to study for my Psychology course and I need some help to understand this question.

conduct an in-depth study of a narrowly-focused topic related to how our mind works.

Topic Selection: The topic you choose should be quite narrow—for example, cocktail party phenomenon or visual neglect rather than attention; incubation and creative problem solving or functional fixedness rather than problem solving; or the deliberation-without-attention effect or belief bias rather than reasoning. A good place to look for topic ideas is in your text: the chapter subheadings, the lists of key terms, or the Think about It and If You Want to Know More sections in each chapter.

In a 10-page paper, including title page and reference list, you will examine how cognitive psychologists think about a specific aspect of how people think. Your goals are to (1) identify, for your topic, the major issue or issues that cognitive psychologists are addressing, (2) discuss empirical studies of the topic, including methods and key findings, (3) explain cognitive psychologists’ current state of thinking about the topic based on research to date, (4) outline their ideas for further research on the topic, and (5) discuss the relevance of this topic and body of research for our everyday lives.
