Combining Artificial Intelligence with Neurophysiological Recordings

to Identify Factors Limiting 

Human Cognition 

Using Neurostimulation to Augment Limits in Human Cognition

(Storage and Manipulation enhancement by up to 26%)

Identifying Evolutionary and Developmental Origins of Limits in Human Cognition (by testing human, adults, and an African Grey Parrot)

How do we update our internal representations of the dynamic world and simulate objects/events that we have not perceptually experienced?
