Networks in Cognitive Science

Networks of interconnected nodes have long played a key role in cognitive science, from artificial neural networks to spreading activation models of semantic memory. Recently, however, a new Network Science has been developed, providing insights into the emergence of global, system-scale properties in contexts as diverse as the Internet, metabolic reactions or collaborations among scientists. Today, the inclusion of network theory into cognitive sciences, and the expansion of complex systems science, promises to significantly change the way in which the organization and dynamics of cognitive and behavioral processes are understood. In this paper, we review recent contributions of network theory at different levels and domains within the cognitive sciences.

 Network and complex systems theory are becoming key cornerstones to many fields, and this paper helps explain the mapping to cognitive sciences. Worth a read.

Jim Price's curator insight, May 24, 2013 12:56 PM

A reminder that complex systems theory is all about scalability (fractals for instance) and that the ways of working of the brain in cognitive science can offer clincial teachers lessons about how we teach in other contexts  - both the classroom & workplace. Just 'think' about it...!

Eye tracking is used by linguistic researchers to investigate human language development, language skills, and reading behavior. It is particularly useful in studies involving children who cannot yet speak and are still developing motor and other such skills.

Birdsong, Speech, and Language: Exploring the Evolution of Mind and Brain

Scholars have long been captivated by the parallels between birdsong and human speech and language. In this book, leading scholars draw on the latest research to explore what birdsong can tell us about the biology of human speech and language and the consequences for evolutionary biology. They examine the cognitive and neural similarities between birdsong learning and speech and language acquisition, considering vocal imitation, auditory learning, an early vocalization phase ("babbling"), the structural properties of birdsong and human language, and the striking similarities between the neural organization of learning and vocal production in birdsong and human speech. After outlining the basic issues involved in the study of both language and evolution, the contributors compare birdsong and language in terms of acquisition, recursion, and core structural properties, and then examine the neurobiology of song and speech, genomic factors, and the emergence and evolution of language.

Fox eBook's curator insight, August 19, 2013 9:04 PM

Bringing the advances of theoretical linguistics to the study of language change in a systematic way, this innovative textbook demonstrates the mutual relevance of historical linguistics and contemporary linguistics. Numerous case studies throughout the book show both that theoretical linguistics can be used to solve problems where traditional approaches to historical linguistics have failed to produce satisfying results, and that the results of historical research can have an impact on theory. The book first explains the nature of human language and the sources of language change in broad terms. It then focuses on different types of language change from contemporary viewpoints, before exploring comparative reconstruction – the most spectacular success of traditional historical linguistics -and the problems inherent in trying to devise new methods for linguistic comparison. Positioned at the cutting edge of the field, the book argues that this approach can and should lead to the re-integration of historical linguistics as one of the core areas in the study of language.

Table of Contents

1 The nature of human language and language variation
2 Language replication and language change
3 Language change in the speech community
4 Language contact as a source of change
5 Sound change
6 The evolution of phonological rules
7 Morphology
8 Morphological change
9 Syntactic change
10 Reconstruction
