Cognitive Science Dept. Opens Research Labs

The Department of Cognitive Science inaugurated five new research laboratories in the Frankel Leo building on Sept. 23. The laboratories will be used for experiments on human perception, action production, social interaction, cooperation, and communication. Methods borrowed from cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and behavioral economics will be employed under the supervision of professors Guenther Knoblich, Natalie Sebanz and Jozsef Fiser. Also, the department offers training in experimental methods as part of its PhD program.
