Cognitive Science Research Labs

Cognition is the study of the mind — the goal is to identify the processes that help both humans and nonhuman animals acquire, retain and use knowledge. Cognitive science research in our department aims to understand more about perception, attention, learning, problem-solving and representation of the world. This includes how we perceive and navigate through space and time, how we communicate with one another, and how we reason and make decisions on a daily basis.
