  2. 2. The puzzle of social activity the significance of tools in cognition and cooperation

    University dissertation from Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Tarja Susi; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cognition science; social interactions; subject-object relationship; human-computer; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science Cognitive science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap Kognitionsvetenskap;

    Abstract : This dissertation addresses the role of tools in social interactions, or more precisely the significance of tools in cognition and cooperation, from a situated cognition perspective. While mainstream cognitive science focuses on the internal symbolic representations and computational thought processes inside the heads of individuals, situated cognition approaches instead emphasise the central role of the interaction between agents and their material and social environment.

  3. 3. Minding the Body Interacting socially through embodied action

    University dissertation from Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Jessica Lindblom; Högskolan i Skövde.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science Cognitive science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap Kognitionsvetenskap; Embodiment; embodied cognition; embodied cognitive science; social interaction; social cognition; embodied action; interactive technology;

    Abstract : This dissertation clarifies the role and relevance of the body in social interaction and cognition from an embodied cognitive science perspective. Theories of embodied cognition have during the past two decades offered a radical shift in explanations of the human mind, from traditional computationalism which considers cognition in terms of internal symbolic representations and computational processes, to emphasizing the way cognition is shaped by the body and its sensorimotor interaction with the surrounding social and material world.

  4. 4. Studying Simulations with Distributed Cognition

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jonas Rybing; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Simulations are frequently used techniques for training, performance assessment, and prediction of future outcomes. In this thesis, the term “human-centered simulation” is used to refer to any simulation in which humans and human cognition are integral to the simulation’s function and purpose (e.g., simulation-based training).
