Abstract:

Grantee investigated the current state of the art in how understanding of cellular mechanisms can be used to develop computational theories in the cognitive sciences. The review was conducted in a workshop setting, with three organized discussion sessions. Recognized experts were invited to cover advances in four areas 1 Cognitive Psychology, 2 Computational Cognition, 3 Neural Circuits, and 4 Brain Imaging. All the invited speakers were asked and encouraged to participate in the three organized discussion sessions 1 Current issues and directions in cognitive science, 2 Funding directions and mechanisms, and opportunities for collaborative research, and 3 Exchange programs and training opportunities for graduate and postdoctoral students. An edited volume based on the invited talks, Frontiers of Cognitive Science From Cellular Circuitry to Computational Cognition, is planned
