• cognitive science
  • Eleanor Rosch, Evan Thompson, Francisco J. Varela: The Embodied Mind: Cognitive Science and Human Experience pages 172-173 The Varela enactive definition is broad enough to overlap the views of extended cognition and situated cognition, and indeed, these ideas are not always carefully separated. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, according to Michael Dawson, the relationship is tangled: "In viewing cognition as embedded or situated, embodied cognitive science emphasizes feedback between an agent and the world. (wikipedia.org)
  • dynamics
  • Regulation of protein translation, protein degradation, cytoskeletal dynamics, extracellular matrix interactions, second messenger signaling, and neurotransmitter receptor trafficking and function are all components of synaptic remodeling essential for cognition. (jneurosci.org)
  • neural
  • By working with a variety of neurodevelopmental rodent models, we strive to identify a common pathophysiology that underlies cognitive control failure as well as a common strategy for improving cognition in the face of neural circuit abnormalities. (frontiersin.org)
  • capacities
  • defined "embodied": "By using the term embodied we mean to highlight two points: first that cognition depends upon the kinds of experience that come from having a body with various sensorimotor capacities, and second, that these individual sensorimotor capacities are themselves embedded in a more encompassing biological, psychological and cultural context. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Routledge Handbook of Embodied Cognition, page 62 Some authors explain the dependence of cognition upon the body and its environmental interactions by saying cognition in real biological systems is not an end in itself but is constrained by the system's goals and capacities. (wikipedia.org)
  • aspects
  • RA Wilson and L Foglia, Embodied Cognition in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy This thesis omits direct mention of some aspects of the "more encompassing biological, psychological and cultural context" included by Varela et al. (wikipedia.org)
  • several
  • Cognition may be viewed as the product of several interrelated general processes that feed both forward and backward onto downstream and upstream effectors, respectively ( Fig. 1 ). (jneurosci.org)
  • basis
  • Lectures, discussions, demonstrations, and experiments will form the basis for our explorations of cognition in this class. (middlebury.edu)
  • Remarkable advances and new technologies are providing a clearer picture of the molecular basis of cognition. (jneurosci.org)
  • authors
  • The authors gave five conditions of minimal cognition in living beings, and concluded that 'plants are cognitive in a minimal, embodied sense that also applies to many animals and even bacteria. (wikipedia.org)
