Software for demonstrating complex adaptive systems

[url=http://cognitrn.psych.indiana.edu/rgoldsto/complex/]Software for demonstrating complex adaptive systems[/url] involves several computer simulations for an undergraduate course Professor Robert Goldstone teaches at Indiana University called "Complex Adaptive Systems." The course deals with systems that evolve and adapt over time.  Psychology, computer science, economics, biology, and neuroscience depend upon a deeper understanding of the mechanisms that govern adaptive systems.  A common feature of these systems is that organized behavior emerges from the interactions of many simple parts.  Ants organize to build colonies, neurons organize to produce adaptive human behavior, and businesses organize to create economies.  To address the essential question of "What are the properties of complex adaptive systems?," case studies of several systems are explored: chaotic growth in animal populations, human learning, cooperation and competition within social groups, and the evolution of artificial life.  The central thesis is that widely different systems (businesses, ant colonies, brains) share fundamental commonalities.

[url=http://pedcurmac13.unifr.ch/CogStrat.html]The Training of Cognitive Strategies[/url] is a program from the Institute of Special Education University of Fribough/Switzerland. It's designed to improve the cognitive functioning. Learning disabled, mentally handicapped, but also normally intelligent people can get benefit from it, according to the folks at the Institute.
