Computational Cognitive Science Group at the University of Edinburgh
Bramley Lab is based the school of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences at the University of Edinburgh. We are an interdisciplinary group of cognitive scientists, psychologists, philosophers and computer scientists and one part of a larger Computational Cognitive Science community spanning PPLS and Informatics.
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.
