Cognitive model
A cognitive model is an approximation to animal cognitive processes (predominantly human) for the purposes of comprehension and prediction. Cognitive models can be developed within or without a cognit...

EU spends $1.4 billion on flawed, but exciting, brain-in-a-box project - ExtremeTech
A man we will be hearing a bit more about in the future, Henry Markram, has just sold the European Union a brain in a box for €1 billion ($1.4 billion). The Human Brain Project will not create the equ...
Cognitive architecture
A cognitive architecture can refer to a theory about the structure of the human mind. Nobel Laureate Herb Simon, one of the founders of the field of artificial intelligence, stated that the 1960 th...
Mental representation
A mental representation (or cognitive representation), in philosophy of mind, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and cognitive science, is a hypothetical internal cognitive symbol that represents ext...
Pandemonium architecture
Pandemonium architecture arose in response to the inability of template matching theories to offer a biologically plausible explanation of the image constancy phenomena. Contemporary researchers prais...
Nouvelle AI
During the late 1980s, the artificial intelligence approach now known as nouvelle AI (new AI in a mix of French and English) was pioneered at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory by Rodney Brook...
Mibe architecture
MIBE architecture (Motivated Independent BEhavior) is a behavior-based robot architecture developed at Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Lab of Politecnico di Milano by Fabio La Daga and Andrea Bon...
Analogical models
Analogical models are a method of representing a phenomenon of the world, often called the ‘target system’ by another, more understandable or analysable system. They are also called dynamical analogie...
Human Brain Project
The Human Brain Project is a large 10-year scientific research project, established in 2013, coordinated by Henry Markram (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) and largely funded by the European ...
Decision field theory
Decision Field Theory (DFT), is a dynamic-cognitive approach to human decision making. It is a cognitive model that describes how people actually make decisions rather than a rational or normative the...
Mental model
A mental model is an explanation of someone's thought process about how something works in the real world. It is a representation of the surrounding world, the relationships between its various parts ...
Nervous system network models
Network of human nervous system comprises nodes (for example, neurons) that are connected by links (for example, synapses). The connectivity may be viewed anatomically, functionally, or electrophysiol...
SNePS
SNePS is a knowledge representation, reasoning, and acting (KRRA) system developed and maintained by Stuart C. Shapiro and colleagues at the State University of New York at Buffalo. SNePS is simultane...
Cognitive module
A cognitive module is, in theories of the modularity of mind and the closely related society of mind theory, a specialised tool or sub-unit that can be used by other parts to resolve cognitive tasks. ...
Blue Brain Project
The Blue Brain Project is an attempt to create a synthetic brain by reverse-engineering the mammalian brain down to the molecular level. The aim of the project, founded in May 2005 by the Brain and Mi...
Subsumption architecture
Subsumption architecture is a reactive robotic architecture heavily associated with behavior-based robotics. The term was introduced by Rodney Brooks and colleagues in 1986. Subsumption has been wid...
Soar (cognitive architecture)
Soar is a cognitive architecture, created by John Laird, Allen Newell, and Paul Rosenbloom at Carnegie Mellon University, now maintained by John Laird's research group at the University of Michigan. I...
Modularity of mind
Modularity of mind is the notion that a mind may, at least in part, be composed of innate neural structures or modules which have distinct established evolutionarily developed functions. Somewhat diff...
Systems modeling
Systems modeling or system modeling is the interdisciplinary study of the use of models to conceptualize and construct systems in business and IT development.A common type of systems modeling is funct...
Spiking neural network
Spiking neural networks (SNNs) fall into the third generation of neural network models, increasing the level of realism in a neural simulation. In addition to neuronal and synaptic state, SNNs also ...
Dynamicism
Dynamicism, also termed the dynamic hypothesis or the dynamic hypothesis in cognitive science or dynamic cognition, is a new approach in cognitive science exemplified by the work of philosopher Tim va...
Physical symbol system
A physical symbol system (also called a formal system) takes physical patterns (symbols), combining them into structures (expressions) and manipulating them (using processes) to produce new expression...

Trace (psycholinguistics)
TRACE is a connectionist model of speech perception, proposed by James McClelland and Jeffrey Elman in 1986. TRACE was made into a working computer program for running perceptual simulations. These s...
Quantum cognition

MindModeling@Home
MindModeling@Home is a non-profit research project that uses a combination of high performance computing and volunteer distributed computing for the advancement of cognitive science. The research focu...
Situated
In artificial intelligence and cognitive science, the term situated refers to an agent which is embedded in an environment. The term situated is commonly used to refer to robots, but some researchers...
Embodied philosophy
In philosophy, embodied cognition holds that an agent's cognition is strongly influenced by aspects of an agent's body beyond the brain itself. In their proposal for an enactive approach to cognition ...
