Dynamic Thinking

A Primer on Dynamic Field Theory

Gregor Schöner, John Spencer, and DFT Research Group

  • Mathematical/technical tools needed to work within the framework are provided
  • Included is a simulator framework and hands-on exercises in model building
  • DFT pushes neural computational modeling to the next level
  • This volume moves beyond feed-forward neural networks to include strongly recurrent neural dynamics
  • Introduces a theoretical framework for embodied cognition that integrates a broad range of fields in psychology and neuroscience
  • Makes key connections to studies of learning and development
  • The exemplary cases studies cover both behavioral experiments accounted for by models and neurophysiological data the models link to
