The mind's golden cage and cognition in the wild

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

The mind has been traditionally conceived as a set of differentiated, compartmentalized cognitive elements. However, understanding everyday, naturalistic cognition across brain health and disease entails major challenges. How can mainstream approaches be extended to cognition in the wild? Pragmatic, methodological, disease-related, and theoretical turns are proposed for future scientific development.
