Integrated Models of Cognitive Systems

Integrated models of cognitive systems can be contrasted with the dominant variety of cognitive modeling that produces single-focus models of cognitive functions such as control of eye movements, visual attention, categorization, decision making, or memory. Such single-focus models are necessary but not sufficient for understanding human cognition. Although single-focused models are not usually created to be part of a larger, more integrated system, if cast in the right form, they can play strong roles in building integrated models of cognitive systems. Builders of integrated models need to explain what they mean by integration. This chapter proposes a new vocabulary that, if adopted, will clarify for the modeling community some of the issues in building integrated models. It may also lead to ways of separating the evaluation of integrated models from their component single-focus models. The heart of the chapter introduces and discusses three types of control and three types of components of integrated models of cognitive systems.

Keywords:   integrated models, cognitive systems, cognitive modeling, single-focus models, cognitive functions, cognition, control
