Master theses in cognitive science (mIKV)

I am interested in neural simulationist semantics, i.e. in how meanings of different linguistic structures correspond to various cognitive or neural (sensorimotor, attentional, control) operations. This topic includes functioning of perception, working memory, long-term memory, motivation, cognitive control, and last but not least learning/acquisition and development. A diploma thesis in this area would include a formal description of some aspects of the topic in terms of cognitive structures and processes, and then design and implementation of a computational model, most probably with artificial neural networks of some type. The work further includes experimenting with simulations and analysis of their results.
