Cognitive Science

The Cognitive Science Centre aims to explain cognitive and behavioral processes such as perception, learning, memory, reasoning, communication and belief acquisition by combining linguistic, psychological, ethological and ethnographical approaches.

Projects span developmental, social, and comparative psychology, along with linguistics, cognitive anthropology and behavioural ecology.

Research focuses on humans but our naturalistic framework explicitly includes other vertebrates from fish to primates with the aim to identify the evolutionary origins of and selective pressures on human cognition.
