Senses, Sentences, Stories, and Human Intelligence
The Genesis group seeks a UROP generally interested in understanding the role of language in human intelligence. UROP will work either on the question of how language exploits the capabilities of vision and visual imagination or on the question of how language enables high level, analogical thinking, using description of events or stories. The primary focus is on scientific understanding. An application area of particular interest is that of Cyber security.
