Agent-based social simulation with multiagent systems--an important aspect of social computing--can benefit from incorporating cognitive architectures, which provide a realistic basis for modeling individual agents and therefore their social interactions. A cognitive architecture is a domain-generic computational cognitive model that may be used for a broad (multiple-domain) analysis of individual behavior. This article gives an example of a cognitive architecture called Clarion and presents three case studies demonstrating its application to social simulation. This article is part of a special issue on social computing.
