Science is an interdisciplinary field devoted to the study
of cognition. This interdisciplinary science provides the
playground for convergence and integration of different fields
of sciences and continues to flourish, attracting the participation
of the broader cognitive science community in Iran.
The research programs in
IPM School of Cognitive Sciences (IPM-SCS) cover research
projects in diverse areas including cognitive neuroscience,
neural modeling, psychophysics, linguistics, neural networks
and artificial intelligence. IPM-SCS sustains programs of
research to elucidate how cognition is related to the function
of the brain. Our main goals are to promote and facilitate
scientific research in cognitive sciences by:
Facilitating the formation of alliances
of investigators with common interests, particularly in
the fields of cognitive neuroscience and neural modeling.
Establishment of research laboratories to study brain
functions related to cognitive behaviors such as visual
object recognition, attention, concept formation and abstraction
using techniques such as single-unit recording from primates,
ERP and fMRI.
Promoting the cognitive sciences by organizing international
and domestic workshops and seminars.
