Cognitive Architectures & Computational Cognitive Science

Research in cognitive architecture studies the fixed structures underlying cognition. At Michigan, we are exploring architectural structures to support human-level AI systems, as well as computational models of human behavior and the structure of the human brain. All these efforts draw from AI, psychology, and neuroscience, so that our research is inherently interdisciplinary. Michigan is unique in the breadth of cognitive architecture research it supports, including active groups in Soar, EPIC, Act-R, Cognitive Constraint Modeling, and neutrally-inspired architectures.
