My mission is to understand the emergence and the organizational principles of complex adaptive systems, both natural and artificial. While being interested in a wide range of phenomena in nature and society, my focus is on the study of the human brain and cognition. My mission is motivated and driven by the following questions: What are the principles that would enable us to understand how the human brain models reality and self? How neuromolecular and neurophysiological processes give rise to psychological phenomena and how the physical and molecular/biological bases of these phenomena can be adequately modelled and further integrated with psychological theories? To what extent and under what conditions can we implement our knowledge about neurocognition into in-silico artificial organisms and virtually embodied autonomous agents and thereby test our neurocognitive integrative models?
