Investigating human knowledge acquisition and its learning mechanisms.
Albert: So what is the "me"?
Chris: My brain I suppose.
Albert: Your brain? Your brain is a body part. Like your fingernail or your heart. Why is that the part that's you?
Chris: Because I have sort of a voice in my head, the part of me that thinks, that feels, that is aware that I exist at all.
Albert: So if you're aware you exist, then you do....

Welcome to the Computational Cognition and Development Lab at Hanyang University, Seoul. We investigate how we acquire knowledge by identifying the learning mechanisms involved. We are also interested in how these knowledge representations change across development and are formed in different contexts. Our research area includes, but is not limited to, episodic/semantic memory, semantic cognition, category learning and their developments. We also build computational (cognitive) models and statistical methods to better explain these behavioral patterns.

We are currently recruiting lab members. See more details here.

Korean SWOW project

We are expanding the word association project in Korean. Please take a couple of minutes to play a short free association game. Or share the link with anybody who speaks Korean!


I Say U Say

We are collecting children's word associations through a free association task. If you have a child or teenager under 17 and are interested, we would like to invite you to participate in a 10-minute word association study.
