Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In the MEi:CogSci lecture series researchers from the core disciplines of cognitive science at the University of Vienna and Medical University of Vienna (and other institutions) introduce their research questions, topics, approaches and methods in short evening talks. Students should focus on interdisciplinarity and cognitive science aspects of their respective research.

Learning Outcomes:
- Familiarity with individual researchers' questions and approaches
- Insight into the field and scientific culture of the core disciplines of cognitive science
- Insight how a particular way to pose a scientific question is related to the methodology chosen
