The Cognitive Development Center (CDC) was established in September 2008 by Gergely Csibra and Gyorgy Gergely (both faculty members in the Department of Philosophy). The mission of CDC is centered around scientific research on the cognitive development of babies and children. The research work of the center addresses questions related to the ontogenesis of human cognitive capacities, especially action interpretation, emotional development, social cognition and basic cultural learning mechanisms. CDC also plays an active role in the PhD program of the Department of Philosophy.
