  1. 1. Distributed cognition in home environments : The prospective memory and cognitive practices of older adults

    Author : Mattias Forsblad (Kristiansson); Nils Dahlbäck; Corinna Kruse; Fredrik Stjernberg; Oskar Lindwall; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; Distributed cognition; intelligent use of space; cognitive aging;

    Abstract : In this thesis I explore how older people make use of, and interact with, their physical environment in home and near-by settings to manage cognitive situations, specifically prospective memory situations. Older adults have in past research been shown to perform better on prospective memory in real-life settings than what findings in laboratory-like settings predict. READ MORE

  2. 2. How designers work - making sense of authentic cognitive activities

    Author : Henrik Gedenryd; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; History and Arts; planning; problem solving; pragmatism; situated cognition; distributed cognition; situated action; inquiry; interactive cognition; psychology; design methodology; design theory; cognitive science; cognition; design; Historia och konstvetenskap; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : In recent years, the growing scientific interest in design has led to great advances in our knowledge of authentic design processes. However, as these findings go counter to the existing theories in both design research and cognitive science, they pose a serious challenge for both disciplines: there is a wide gap between what the existing theories predict and what designers actually do.

  3. 3. Artefactual Intelligence: The Development and Use of Cognitively Congenial Artefacts

    Author : David de Léon; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; pervasive computing; affective computing; persuasive computing; Psychology; Psykologi; computer-mediated extrospection; precommitment; self-control; situated cognition; distributed motivation; cognitive ethnography; distributed cognition; cognitive biographies; redesign; task–artefact cycle; artefact evolution; artefact design; task structure; cognitive task; cognitive congeniality; artefactual intelligence; cognitive artefacts; task environment; tools; Cognition; artefacts; ubiquitous computing;

    Abstract : How can tools help structure tasks to make them cognitively easier to perform? How do artefacts, and our strategies for using them, develop over time in cognitively beneficial ways? These are two of the main questions that are explored in the five papers collected in this thesis. The first paper details an ethnographic study conducted on people cooking in their homes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fördelade kunskapsprocesser i ledningscentraler vid nödsituationer : Koordination och situationsmedvetenhet

  5. 5. Studying Simulations with Distributed Cognition

    Author : Jonas Rybing; Magnus Bång; Erik Prytz; Sofie Pilemalm; Henrik Eriksson; Anne Blandford; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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).
