Title: The Human Mind: Computing with Finite Natural Resources


The human mind is quite powerful yet it is limited in several ways. I will present some examples in the areas of perception and cognition, zooming on some peculiar facts about the retrieval of information from memory. I will argue that the way the human mind operates arises from evolutionary, structural, and processing constraints.
