Title: Understanding the Mechanisms of the Mind through an Integrated Science of the Mind Initiative
Lead Author: McClelland, James L
Abstract: This white paper proposes an initiative to create an Integrated Science of the Mind. This science would integrate and expand theory, method, models, and training to achieve a new, and potentially paradigm-shifting, scientific framework for understanding the operation of the mind. An integrated science of the mind would encompass a wide range of topics related to mental processes and behavior. The purpose of this white paper is to indicate how the cross-disciplinary integration of basic research could transform science practice, leading to new breakthroughs in our understanding of the mind that will enhance human productivity, health, and well-being through better education and enhancement to human decision making and social engagement, while also creating new technologies that will further enhance productivity, safety and well being while spurring future industries and enhanced economic development. We lay out the broad vision, discuss this vision in relation to the several relevant research topics, and describe opportunities for building systemic change in research practice and research funding through a multi-directorate and multi-agency effort initiated and coordinated by the NSF SBE Directorate. Related white papers provide details of the specific opportunities in three selected areas within the scope of the overall Science of the Mind.
