Integrated Models of Cognitive Systems

A recent trend in cognitive modeling is to couple cognitive architecture with computer models or simulations of dynamic environments to study interactive behavior and embedded cognition. Progress in this area is made difficult because cognitive architectures traditionally have been motivated by data from discrete experimental trials using static, non-interactive tasks. As a result, additional theoretical problems must be addressed to bring cognitive architectures to bear on the study of cognition in dynamic and interactive environments. This chapter explore three such problems dealing with the need to model the sensitivity of behavior to environmental constraints, the need to model highly context-specific adaptations underlying expertise, and the need for environmental modeling at a functional level. It illustrates these problems and describes how they have been addressed in a study on modeling interactive behavior and embedded cognition.

Keywords:   cognitive modeling, interactive behavior, embedded cognition, dynamic environments, environmental constraints, adaptations, expertise, environmental modeling, cognitive architecture
