CREST “Cognitive Feeling”

JST CREST “Cognitive Feelings that Mediate Between Perception and Emotion”
(Principal Investigator: Yukie Nagai, Period: 2021.10-2027.03)

This project aims to elucidate the principle of cognitive feelings based on predictive processing as a unified brain theory. Cognitive feelings include senses of knowing, confidence, reality, fluency, etc. about perceptual experiences. We hypothesize that perception and emotion about the perception are mediated by cognitive feelings. This project will provide a deeper and novel understanding of multi-sensing systems with cognitive feelings by integrating synthetic and analytic approaches.
