AugCog: The Center for Augmented Cognition

Augmented cognition is about making tools for thinking. It is not about designing tools that humans can use, but about extending humanity's abilities through software, hardware or conceptual tools. We focus mainly on software here, curating a collection of links and resources. Email Sam Gerstenzang with any suggestions.

Consciousness is always being augmented by our collective cognition. Could be well worth augmenting, no?

Tools for thinking. Amazing.

VIENNA -- Blood concentrations of some antioxidative micronutrients were positively associated with executive function and visuopractical skills, researchers reported here.

Among healthy patients, plasma concentrations of non-provitamin A were positively and significantly associated with executive function, before and after adjustment for body mass index (BMI), smoking status, diabetes, hypertension, and cardiac disease (Beta=0.086, P<0.05), according to Abhijit Sen, MSc, of the Medical University Graz in Austria, and colleagues.

Additionally, concentrations of provitamin A were positively and significantly associated with visuopractical skills (Beta=0.066, P<0.05) before and after adjustment, Sen said at an oral presentation during the World Congress of Neurology meeting.

Critical thinking is the basis for all sound decision making. It is objective thinking where one analyzes all factors from different angles, perspectives and viewpoints.
Katterley's insight:

Game development, game play, too, can be a vibrant & efficient, painless way to  engage in critical thinking, decision making, ethics, and  so much more.
