Nancy Salay is a member of both the Department of Philosophy and the School of Computing at Queen’s University. Her central area of specialization is cognitive science. Currently in her research she is focusing on the role of representation and the development of concepts in cognition, especially trying to map these ideas onto recent understanding in neuroscience and cognitive psychology. She has long struggled with the problem of how to bridge the gap between theory and practice; her most recent project in this area is the organization Do It Better, the focus of which is to give workshops on how to maintain and improve various aspects of one’s own cognitive capacities.
