Profile Information

The Interdisciplinary Centre for the Artificial Mind (iCAM) is an international Research Centre undertaking innovative research on the mind’s development over a lifespan, in interaction with artificial environments.

iCAM is dedicated to making the following over-arching contributions:

  • to guide new investigation into human-artificial environment interaction,
  • to analyse the development of mind within artificial environments,
  • to provide preventive solutions for human health disorders, and explore treatments of neurological diseases.

Three research streams constitute the basic research orientation of the Centre:

  • To understand mind functioning in everyday development over an entire lifespan through a strong theoretical background including fundamental research.
  • To analyse how neurocognitive development occurs when immersed in virtual/mixed/augmented reality and in interaction with robots.
  • To investigate the organisation and/or reorganisation of the mind in the presence of a neurodevelopmental disorder including ASD, prematurity or after a head injury, or a stroke, and through neuroeducation using virtual/mixed/augmented reality and robots.
