The challenge addressed by this research project is to create a hybrid cognitive architecture that will possess key features of human higher cognition. Our approach is based on the integration of symbolic and connectionist components at the top representational level. The framework of schemas, which is the base of this architecture, is described in the context of integration with neuromorphic cognitive maps in specific learning paradigms. The formalism of schemas is illustrated by several examples set in a virtual Roboscout environment.
