Abstract and Keywords

This chapter presents a hybrid cognitive architecture CLARION, which is significantly different from most existing cognitive architectures in several important respects. CLARION is hybrid in that it (a) combines connectionist and symbolic representations, (b) combines implicit and explicit psychological processes, and (c) combines cognition (in the narrow sense) and other psychological processes. Overall, CLARION is a modularly structured cognitive architecture consisting of a number of functional subsystems. It also has a dual representational structure, with both implicit and explicit representations. CLARION has been successful in capturing a variety of psychological processes in a variety of task domains based on its structuring of functional modules.

Keywords: cognitive architecture, cognitive modeling, CLARION, implicit processes, motivation, meta-cognition
