Marco Mirolli's Homepage

I am a Researcher at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies (ISTC) of the Italian National Research Council (CNR). I hold a PhD in Cognitive Sciences (University of Siena, 2006) and a Degree in Philosophy (University of Siena, 2001).

I study brain and behaviour through computer simulations.
In particular, I have been working on the evolution of communication and language, the role of language as a cognitive tool, the biological bases of motivations and emotions, the role of intrinsic motivations in cumulative learning, and the role of the concept of representation in (Embodied) Cognitive Science. I am also interested in the epistemology of simulations and in foundational issues of Cognitive Science.

You can find my papers and books in the Publications page.
