Research Opportunities

Cognitive systems at the reasoning-perception interface

Human reasoning uses analogies, metaphors, and analogous representations to greatly expand our horizons: we “grasp” a concept, or “see” how a complex phenomenon works. While many animals have amazing problem solving skills, human cognition is unique in its ability for higher reasoning, yet there is an explanatory gap between logic/mathematics and the associative structures we know underly human and animal cognition. Thanks to recent discoveries, we have a better understanding of this interface, which opens new pathways for both foundational and applied projects.
