research overview

  • Dr. O'Reilly's research focuses on biologically-based computational models of learning mechanisms in different brain areas, including hippocampus, prefrontal cortex & basal ganglia, and posterior visual cortex. His models provide a bridge between neuroscience and cognition, using biological mechanisms to explain cognitive function. These models can perform complex cognitive tasks, and thus are also of considerable practical interest (e.g., in robotics or other application domains of artificial intelligence) in their increasing ability to capture important aspects of human intelligence. Currently, individual brain area models are being integrated into an overall cognitive architecture, which is trained in a virtual robotic environment, providing necessary 'embodiment' to the learning process.
