The study of cognition is inextricably bound up with computation: Cognitive science seeks to understand human cognition as computation implemented in neural hardware. Birkbeck’s Centre for Cognition, Computation, and Modelling unites research spanning the breadth of modelling techniques and frameworks employed in the study of human behaviour. Based at Birkbeck’s Department of Psychological Sciences, the Centre includes world leading researchers from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines interested in computational methods and models as theoretical and practical tools for understanding the functioning of mind and brain. Integral to the Centre are its lively postgraduate community and the MSc in Cognition and Computation. Seminars and reading groups provide a focal point for shared research, and close links with other London institutions provide a unique intellectual environment for computational research on cognition.
