Computational Cognition

Information about the Computational Cognition Graduate Major.


The Computational Cognition major is for students who wish to study computational principles underlying cognition and its neural substrate. It provides a strong background in both computational foundations and cognitive psychology, and allows students to develop integrative research interests that cross domains. The Computational Cognition major, which is coordinated by Hongjing Lu, is open to students in the Cognitive area (who will be admitted in the standard way through the Cognitive area). Students who pursue the Computational Cognition major will continue to be considered Cognitive area students for administrative purposes. For a list of Required Courses please see the Psychology Handbook.
