  • He considered that distributed cognition draws from the information processing metaphor of cognitive science where a system is considered in terms of its inputs and outputs and tasks are decomposed into a problem space (Perry, 1998). (wikipedia.org)
  • processes
  • These so-called Internet-based generative collectives-groups of people with shared interests or goals who mutually engage in generative acts-evolve around three processes of distributed cognition, namely reflection, interaction, and representation. (aisnet.org)
  • The findings of a Q-factor analysis reveal that processes of distributed cognition lie at the heart of generative collectives. (aisnet.org)
  • Furthermore, depending on how enabling the underlying structure and available technology of a collective is, an environment emerges in which the processes of interaction, reflection, and representation can flourish, thereby maximizing the collective's generative capacity. (aisnet.org)
  • These representation-based frameworks consider distributed cognition as "a cognitive system whose structures and processes are distributed between internal and external representations, across a group of individuals, and across space and time" (Zhang and Patel, 2006). (wikipedia.org)
  • Cognition is said to be "socially distributed" when it is applied to demonstrate how interpersonal processes can be used to coordinate activity within a social group. (wikipedia.org)
  • contributions
  • According to Zhang & Norman (1994), the distributed cognition approach has three key components: Embodiment of information that is embedded in representations of interaction Coordination of enaction among embodied agents Ecological contributions to a cognitive ecosystem 'Dcog' studies the "propagation of representational states across media" (Rogers and Ellis, ibid. (wikipedia.org)
  • neurons
  • In this article, they argue that since there is no evidence for the presence of neurons in plants, the idea of plant neurobiology and cognition is unfounded and needs to be redefined. (wikipedia.org)
  • mental health

  • The Sunday Times reported in October 2015 that a growing number of schools in the UK, including independent schools Monkton Combe School and Wellington College, are now using a technology, AS Tracking, developed by Mind.World to measure student steering cognition as an 'early warning system' for welfare and mental health risks.

  • In her capacity as a professor she teaches graduate courses related to cognition and science education. (wikipedia.org)
  • content
  • Mental content is considered to be non-reducible to individual cognition and is more properly understood as off-loaded and extended into the environment, where information is also made available to other agents (Heylighen, Heath, & Overwalle, 2003). (wikipedia.org)
  • group
  • Studies have shown that environmental biasing of our steering cognition can contribute to non-conscious in-group behaviours, e.g. an increased likelihood of groupthink or emotional contagion. (wikipedia.org)
