Department of Cognitive Science

We explore the social and biological aspects of human cognition and behavior: how learning, processing and sharing information takes place, and how the interplay between the human mind and sociocultural practices affects people’s actions. Students, together with faculty, carry out interdisciplinary research right from the start, drawing on psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, mathematical modeling, linguistics and the social sciences.
Our department runs several research projects funded by the European Research Council in state-of-the-art research facilities with technology for infant studies, eye and motion tracking, music, EEG and NIRS. Our vibrant, multicultural community also hosts weekly colloquium talks, and regular conferences and workshops to exchange ideas and network with fellow researchers.
