Cognitive Science

Human cognition is one of the most challenging and exciting of scientific frontiers. All voluntary and involuntary actions, perceptions, feelings, and thoughts are controlled by the brain and nervous system, yet fundamental questions about how these events occur remain unanswered. Our campus has considerable strength in the study of human cognition from the perspectives of linguistics, psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, and computer science. The campus’s new MRI/S creates a unique niche for partnering with industry and positions the campus for research opportunities in clinical technologies and methodologies.
