Cognition & Cognitive Neuroscience

Research in cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience is concerned with understanding behavior and neural substrates of human perception, thinking, reasoning, learning, memory, and language abilities. The field as a whole is influenced by developments in related disciplines such as computer science, linguistics, and philosophy, and fueled by the state-of-the-art tools for imaging live human brain in action (e.g., EEG, fMRI, TMS), advanced methods for measuring behavior (e.g., performance measures, eye tracking, motion capture), as well as by investigations of neuropsychological populations (e.g., individuals with schizophrenia, autism).
