An excellent turnout this year from the CNRG at the 38th Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society.

Ivana Kajic presented an approach towards cognitively realistic representations of word associations using the Remote Associates Task. [Paper]

Peter Blouw presented a scalable model of action planning capable of performing the correct sequence of actions in a simulated environment to solve a particular task. [Paper]

Sean Aubin gave a presentation on a model of mathematical development (from a counting based strategy for addition to a recall based strategy) replicating human data in terms of accuracy and reaction times. This paper also received the prize for best applied cognition paper. Congratulations! [Paper]

Sugandha Sharma presented a poster for a model of context dependent decision making in the prefrontal cortex. The model closely matched both behavioural and neural data obtained from monkeys performing a context sensitive perceptual decision making task. [Paper]
