Welcome to the Chair of Cognitive Modeling
The chair of Cognitive Modeling addresses the question: "How does the mind work?", pursuing an integrative, interdisciplinary, computational approach.
We conduct studies in behavioral psychology and build artificial neural- and information-theoretic computational learning models of cognitive processes and encodings, including their development over time.
We integrate our research into further reaching aspects of cognition, including self-perception, action decision making, planning, reasoning, as well as social- and language-based cognition.
Introducing Cognitive Science from a Functional and Computational Perspective:
- Have a look at this book review in Perception.
A note on the previous "COBOSLAB":
The chair of Cognitive Modeling was previously called the COBOSLAB: COgnitive BOdy Spaces: Learning And Behavior.
The COBOSLAB has been developing artificial self-organized cognitive systems that learn multimodal modular sensorimotor bodyspace representations for effective learning and behavior. We have developed and implemented artificial adaptive systems that learn, develop, and behave autonomously based on learning principles derived from cognitive psychology and neuroscience. Meanwhile, we have investigated behavioral flexibilities and spatial representations and perceptions to (1) verify or evaluate the developed computational models and to (2) gain further insights on how space is perceived and behavior is controlled.
