Weinberg Institute for Cognitive Science

Welcome to the Weinberg Institute for Cognitive Science!

Thought. Language. Choice. Learning. Emotion. Motivation. How does the mind work, and why does it work the way that it does? Is your brain a biological computer? What is the nature of human agency, the relationship between the mental and the physical?

Cognitive Science is an exciting, fast-growing, and revolutionary area of study which seeks to develop integrated explanations of mind, brain, and behavior. Drawing on concepts and methods from a range of related fields — including linguistics, psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, and computer science — Cognitive Science students acquire a truly interdisciplinary knowledge base and a multifaceted set of analytic skills.
