The Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN) supports research exploring the biological bases of human behavior.
ICN was founded in 2018 to promote interdisciplinary studies in cooperation with departments of psychology, linguistics, electrical engineering, and computer science, among many others.
Using tools like eye tracking, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and neuroimaging (EEG, MEG, fMRI), we examine the neural mechanisms of human behavior, cognition, and social interaction. Our goal is to advance the empirical study and theoretical understanding of cognition and communication from an interdisciplinary perspective.
The Institute offers masters and doctoral programs in cognitive and brain sciences. It organizes a weekly colloquium, a journal club, a summer school, and various conferences. ICN regularly hosts institute fellows and extended visits by internationally acclaimed scholars.
ICN supervises doctoral programme and one of the most popular interdisciplinary masters programs on campus: Cognitive Sciences and Technologies: From Neuron to Cognition. This program provides a broad curriculum in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, computational neuroscience, and neurotechnology.
