Cognition Institute

Welcome from the Director

It is my privilege to welcome you to the Cognition Institute at Plymouth University. The Cognition Institute is an innovative interdisciplinary research environment, which brings together researchers from a broad range of disciplines toward the understanding of human cognition. The institute facilitates the collaborative interaction of more than 100 principle investigators, with expertise including cognitive psychology, neural sciences, medicine, social sciences, biology, robotics and computational neuroscience. 

At the heart of the Cognition Institute are six core research themes, each with state-of-the-art and pioneering research projects, involving collaborative partners from academia, industry and charitable organisations from around the world. The Cognition Institute is home to the multi-million euro Marie Curie funded CogNovo doctoral training programme, supported by Plymouth University to promote the development of future leaders in Cognitive Innovation research. The Cognition Institute is characterised by an inclusive and collaborative environment, in which researchers with a passion for exploring exciting and challenging questions are able to cooperate to achieve a greater understanding of human cognition.
