Welcome to the Cognition Institute
Plymouth University’s Cognition Institute is an exciting new venture that brings together researchers from a broad range of disciplines. With leading researchers in experimental psychology, cognitive science, cognitive robotics, computational modelling, biology, cognitive and social neuroscience, bio-medicine, the humanities, brain imaging and the creative arts, we aim to establish the Cognition Institute as one of the leading trans-disciplinary centres for research into human cognition.
The Cognition Institute organises many events open to the general public, including international scientific workshops such as Making Sense of Sound and NeuroArts 3, and the annual Contemporary Music Festival.
In October we launched CogTalk
, a monthly soiree at which leading experts discuss topical issues in cognition of public interest. We also organise summer schools, school visits and a range of outreach events.
In March 2013 we hosted our 1st Annual Conference: The Lure of the New
, which also formed the background to our official launch (Photos)

. The conference also had exciting evening programme that was open to the public, including a special film screeening and CogTalk event
We look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon!
