Cognitive Science Program

Cognitive science is directed toward understanding the nature of mind, whether mind be embodied in the biological stuff of neurons in a brain, or in the silicon stuff of computer chips in an artificial brain-like system.


The Quantitative Methods & Evaluation Science initiative is a community of scholars aimed at promoting the use and development of quantitative, computational, and evaluative methods in both basic and applied areas of the psychological sciences. We take a problem-centered approach using and developing quantitative methods to investigate questions in the psychological sciences. A particular focus of the group is on questions that cross multiple levels of analysis in the psychological sciences.
