Current Research

Cognition Engineering delves into the realm of intelligence and intelligent systems, firmly rooted in the computational theory of mind, which guides nuanced behavior. Given the intricate nature of various mental activities, we anticipate a shared set of fundamental processes underlying performance.

Driven by a commitment to understanding cognition, Cognition Engineering endeavors to develop software capable of learning from experience, delving into the complexities of thinking, learning, and reasoning. In the pursuit of survival and reproductive success, organisms must adeptly translate patterns into predictions, a critical adaptation in navigating their environments.

This discipline not only models elements of human consciousness but also aspires to create artificial intelligences capable of rational thought and action, mirroring human behavior.

Virtual Proprioception

Virtual proprioception represents a novel means of developing cortical reorganization of alternative strategies for hemiparetic gait. Fundamentals of the device are motor control plasticity, aftereffect, and visual-based biofeedback. Wireless three-dimensional... Learn More ›

Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is a neurosurgical procedure introduced in 1987, involving the implantation of a medical device called a neurostimulator (sometimes referred to as a 'brain pacemaker'), which sends electrical impulses, through implanted... Learn More ›


Neuromodulation is the physiological process by which a given neuron uses one or more chemicals to regulate diverse populations of neurons. This is in contrast to classical synaptic transmission, in which one presynaptic neuron directly influences a single... Learn More ›
