Welcome to the CogPO Wiki!

Here is where we will come to a consensus on the initial terms that will be included in our ontology of cognitive paradigms. Our starting point are the terms associated with the BrainMap Taxonomy.

In CopPO, a cognitive paradigm is represented by the concept of Behavioral Experimental Paradigm. Each Behavioral Experimental Paradigm is characterized by one or more Behavioral Experimental Paradigm Conditions and Behavioral Experimental Paradigm Condition Contrasts.

We aim to decompose each condition into its corresponding stimulus, response, and instructions:

Each of these terms is categorized by a set of classes, which will increase in size as CogPO evolves.

Stimulus Modality

Auditory Modality Interoceptive Modality Tactile Modality

CogPO Relationships

Proper curation of the above concepts required creation of a set of novel relationships:

has_stimulus has_response has_instructions
has_stimulus_modality has_response_modality has_contrast
included_in_contrast includes_condition related_to

Basic Formal Ontology

CogPO uses a number of terms from Basic Formal Ontology (BFO), Ontology for Biomedical Investigations (OBI), and the Information Artifact Ontology (IAO):

action specification fiat object part object aggregate
planned process process aggregate quality
