For the creation of a virtual 3D creature it is necessary an underlying structure that provides to it some desired capabilities. One of our main research objectives is creating a virtual 3D creature that resembles human behavior in an actual environment. In this paper, we propose a cognitive architecture inspired in the recent findings of the neuroscience which will represent the underlying structure for implementing virtual 3D creatures with human-like capabilities. Those virtual creatures… Expand
The main motivation for this work is to investigate the advantages provided by machine consciousness, while in the control of software agents. In order to pursue this goal, we developed a cognitiveExpand
Formal Specification of a Neuroscience-Inspired Cognitive Architecture
This paper presents the formal specification of a neuroscience-inspired cognitive architecture and uses the Real-Time Process Algebra to formally describe its architectural components and emerging behaviors. Expand
Users' performance of accessible sound-only computer games
The Totally Lost game and different versions of the same game have been designed and evaluated based on user experiences, to test psychological concepts in the very different and very popular context of computer games. Expand


The dynamics of embodiment: A field theory of infant perseverative reaching
It is demonstrated that the A-not-B error and its previously puzzling contextual variations can be understood by the coupled dynamics of the ordinary processes of goal-directed actions: looking, planning, reaching, and remembering. Expand
SOAR: An Architecture for General Intelligence
SOAR, an implemented proposal for a foundation for a system capable of general intelligent behavior, is presented and its organizational principles, the system as currently implemented, and demonstrations of its capabilities are described. Expand
Desiderata for cognitive architectures
This article addresses issues in developing cognitive architectures—generic computational models of cognition. Cognitive architectures are believed to be essential in advancing understanding of theExpand
An integrated theory of the mind.
The perceptual-motor modules, the goal module, and the declarative memory module are presented as examples of specialized systems in ACT-R, which consists of multiple modules that are integrated to produce coherent cognition. Expand
Cognitive Architectures and General Intelligent Systems
It is claimed that research on cognitive architectures is an important path to the development of general intelligent systems and the high-level programming language that embodies these commitments is ICARUS. Expand
Extending the Soar Cognitive Architecture
This paper presents the cognitive architecture approach to general intelligence and the traditional, symbolic Soar architecture, followed by major additions to Soar: non-symbolic representations, new learning mechanisms, and long-term memories. Expand

It is argued that metacognitive executive functions are significantly dependent on culture and cultural instruments and probably are the result of the development and evolution of some "conceptualization instruments"; language (and written language as an extension of oral language) may represent the most important one.

Cognitive architectures: Research issues and challenges
The motivations for research on cognitive architectures are examined, some candidates that have been explored in the literature are reviewed, and some properties that a cognitive architecture should exhibit related to representation, organization, performance, and learning are considered. Expand
Active versus latent representations: a neural network model of perseveration, dissociation, and decalage.
Using neural network models, an account of perseveration and apparent dissociations between children's knowledge and action is explored, helping to clarify how prefrontal development may lead to advances in flexible thinking. Expand
