Cognition

Faculty members in Cognition investigate a wide range of areas in Cognitive Science using a variety of methods. Topics include language, scene processing, event segmentation, music, statistical learning, memory and consciousness. The area has historically taken a unique ecological approach using the perspective that our cognitive systems are best understood in their natural and evolutionary contexts. The methods used by our faculty and students include human experimental techniques, computational and mathematical modeling, electrophysiology, FMRI, eye-tracking and cross-cultural comparisons.
