Cognition Cognition is the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses It encompasses processes such as attention, the formation of knowledge, memory and working memory, judgment and evaluation, reasoning and computation, problem solving and decision making, comprehension and production of language. The Cultural Origins of Human Cognition Ambitious and elegant, this book builds a bridge between evolutionary theory and cultural psychology Michael Tomasello is one of the very few people to have done systematic research on the cognitive capacities of both nonhuman primates and human children. Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition The Florida Institute for Human Machine Cognition IHMC is a not for profit research institute of the State University System of Florida, with locations in Pensacola and Ocala, Florida.IHMC scientists and engineers investigate a broad range of topics related to building technological systems aimed at amplifying and extending human cognitive, physical and perceptual capacities. Artificial cognition for social human robot interaction We focus on a specific class of interactions human robot collaborative task achievement supported by multi modal and situated communication Fig illustrates this context the human and the robot share a common space and exchange information through multiple modalities we specifically consider verbal communication, deictic gestures and social gaze , and the robot is expected to achieve Exclusive Elevated CO Levels Directly Affect Human Both the Harvard and LBNL studies made use of a sophisticated multi variable assessment of human cognition used by a State University of New York SUNY Upstate Medical University team, led by Dr Language, Cognition, and Human Nature Language, Cognition, and Human Nature collects together for the first time much of Steven Pinker s most influential scholarly work on language and cognition Pinker s seminal research explores the workings of language and its connections to cognition, perception, social relationships, child development, human evolution, and theories of human nature. IHMC Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition The Institute for Human Machine Cognition IHMC pioneers technologies aimed at leveraging and extending human capabilities Explore our research areas to see what we re doing. Research IHMC Institute for Human Machine Cognition IHMC researchers Anil Raj and Sergey Drakunov work to improve the interactivity and situation awareness between individuals and the technological systems with which they interact. Hydration and Human Cognition Nutrition Today Although adequate hydration is essential for optimal brain function, research addressing relationships between hydration status and human behavior and cognitive function is limited. Overview HCP Lumosity Lumosity s Human Cognition Project A collaborative effort to accelerate cognitive research Cognitive training is still a relatively new field which makes it an exciting space for new insights and research.
