Research

Overview

Our research spans a large domain and straddles several disciplines in the cognitive, computational, and neural sciences. All of it is connected by the idea that to understand behavior we must study the processes—both neural and computational—that underlie it.

Brain and cognitive sciences (BCS) faculty have research interests that span several major areas of cognitive and brain science, and they make use of a variety of techniques, approaches, and subjects to carry out cutting-edge research of the highest level. The matrix below is designed to help you find the BCS faculty whose research interests and approaches may be of most interest to you.

The rows of the matrix below highlight five major topical areas of research carried out by BCS faculty. The columns of the matrix indicate some of the major approaches and techniques employed by students, postdocs, and faculty in BCS.

In addition, research in BCS is greatly enhanced by our strong ties with departments and programs across the University, including the Medical Center.
