Cognitive control
Cognitive control theory (CoCo) is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering, mathematics, informatics, control theory and the cognitive/social sciences. CoCo deals with the dynamics of individual and/or collective cognitive phenomena. The theories and methodologies of CoCo give control theoretical interpretations of such dynamics in order to explain and control cognitive phenomena, as well as to apply them in system control design, without necessarily distinguishing between biological and artificial aspects. It is important to note that the definition of CoCo engenders systems which function in ways similar to cognitive phenomena, as well as systems which focus on the control of cognitive phenomena. An important aspect of CoCo is that it deals with the dynamics of both individual and collective cognitive phenomena. This means that not only the perception and reasoning of individual living systems are under focus, but also the collective tendencies and behaviors of systems comprised of a large number of living systems.
