Cognitive and Neural Sciences Division 1990 Programs.
Vaughan, Willard S., Jr., Ed.
Research and development efforts carried out under sponsorship of the Cognitive and Neural Sciences Division of the Office of Naval Research during fiscal year 1990 are described in this compilation of project description summaries. The Division's research is organized in three types of programs: (1) Cognitive Science (the human learner--cognitive architectures and abilities; knowledge, skill, and expertise; learning and instruction; and model-based measurement); (2) Perceptual Science (vision and visual attention; audition; haptics and sensory guided motor control; and human factors technology); and (3) Biological Intelligence (computation in large neural networks; chemical modulators of information processing; neural processing of sensory information; local neural circuit interactions; and behavioral immunology). Two other types of programs are included: manpower, personnel, and training research and development programs; and university research initiatives--decision making in hierarchical teams. Each program is described by an overview followed by thematic clusters of related efforts. Each cluster is followed by individual projects active in 1990. The title, principal investigator, project code, contract number, current end date, objective, approach, and progress are provided for 194 projects, representing 101 contractors. Indexes are provided to contractors, projects, and principal investigators. (SLD)
