Cognitive science intramural basketball: A tale of fighting against the odds

A tale of a cognitive scientist fighting the good fight--here, on the court, rather than in the lab. (more)





Research Opportunities (199s)
  • Language Development and Remediation in Children
    We are evaluating two interventions for dyslexia that involve training the temporal dynamics of the visual system (magnocellular pathway) and the auditory system, and whether the two interventions together have super-additive effects. As a Research Assistant, you would be traveling to one or two of five participating local elementary schools ...

  • Cognitive Processes
    “Raednig thees wrods semes to be esaeir tahn you mgiht hvae tohuhgt; waht colud epxlian tihs?” Could you read the sentence above? Having any trouble understanding or recognizing these words? How possible it could be to understand such a sentence, with/without recognize words? What could you explain your effortless ability ...

  • How to administer standardized tests
    We would like to offer a 2 unit 199 course for undergraduate Cognitive Science majors next quarter. This 199 course will be to teach all students how to administer seven standardized tests which take about 1.5 hours/student. We will be administering the standardized tests, each about 5-15 minutes, the longer ...

  • Speech Production Adaptation to Individual Speakers
    When speaking to another person, we tailor our speech production based on information we know about that person: for example, you probably don't use the same vocabulary with a professor as you do with a 2-year-old. This project will investigate how specific this adaptation in the speech production system is. ...

Cognitive Neuroscience Society - Q&A with Marta Kutas

Marta Kutas has been smitten from the beginning with ERPs – event-related potentials, measures of electrical activity in the brain. She calls them “temporally exquisite instruments for investigating what the brain does – loosely, the mind.”


CNS - The Distinguished Career Contributions Award

Congratulations to Marta Kutas. The Distinguished Career Contributions (DCC) award honors senior cognitive neuroscientists for their distinguished career, leadership and mentoring in the field of cognitive neuroscience.  The recipient of this prize will give a lecture at our annual meeting.


Brad Voytek receives a Sloan Fellowship

The prestigious fellowships honor early-career academics whose achievements and potential identify them as rising stars and the next generation of scientific leaders. Fellows receive $50,000 to further their research in eight areas: chemistry, computer science, economics, mathematics, computational and evolutionary molecular biology, neuroscience, ocean sciences, and physics.
