Language bootstraps cognitive complexity (LANGBOOT)

Start date: Jun 1, 2017, End date: May 31, 2022,

Language and cognition have a close, but cryptic, relationship. Is language just another tool in humans' diverse cognitive toolkit; vital for communication, but not necessary for complex, high-level thought? Or is language what allows us to form and manipulate complex thoughts in the first place, by allowing words to act as placeholders in ideas that would otherwise be too unwieldy to handle? Dist ...

Drug development is a long and costly process which suffers from the major shortcoming that frequently failure is often only determined during the final stage. Recently, it has been recognised that more care needs to be taken during the early stages of development to avoid going into lengthy and costly confirmatory studies with ineffective or harmful treatments. To achieve this goal it is essentia ...

Complex Oscillatory Systems: Modeling and Analysis (COSMOS)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

Many natural and artificial systems are often composed of oscillatory elements which, besides evolving according to their own non-trivial internal dynamics, mutually interact. As a result, many temporal and spatial scales are typically present, often accompanied by the spontaneous emergence of collective properties. Altogether, such features make the task of understanding the resulting evolution a ...
