Mind Science, the study of the psychological, biological, and computational processes that govern mental function.

  • The neurobiological substrates underlying reinforced and motivated behaviors
  • The neural basis of learning and memory
  • Individual differences in brain function
  • The neural basis of spatial cognition and human navigation
  • The neural basis of fluent speech and stuttering
  • The neural basis of representation and reasoning about social agents
  • Altered brain function that occurs as a result of autism, mental retardation, and other learning and cognitive disabilities
