Computational Cognitive Science Group at the University of Edinburgh
Bramley Lab is an interdisciplinary research group consisting of computational cognitive scientists, psychologists, philosophers and computer scientists. We are based in the Psychology department wihin the School of Philosophy, Psychology, and Language Sciences, at the University of Edinburgh.
We are interested in understanding the building blocks of human intelligence. In particular, current lab members focus on causal cognition, active learning, generalisation, hypothesis generation, and control. We are part funded by an EPSRC New Investigator Award on Computational Constructivism.
We take a computational approach to studying human cognition and the basis of intelligent behaviour. This typically involves a mixture of running behavioural experiments with adults and children alongside building computational models that synthesise humanlike learning, representation and behaviour.
