Building neural processing accounts of higher cognition in Dynamic Field Theory

AbstractDynamic Field Theory (DFT) has now been around now for a good while (Schoner, Spencer, & DFT Research Group, 2016). Formalizing the earlier dynamical systems metaphor, it has been used as a theoretical framework to understand a broad range of sensory-motor behaviors and elementary cognitive processes like metric working memory (Johnson & Spencer, 2016), change detection (Johnson, Spencer, Luck, & Schoner, 2009), cognitive control (Buss & Spencer, 2014), and movement generation (Knips, Zibner, Reimann, & Schoner, 2017).
