Outline of the Course: The goal of the teaching program is to help to develop a richer appreciation of the mental processes as well as laws and principles that govern them. The focus is on processes including consciousness, perception, attention, knowledge acquisition, memory, decision making, reasoning, emotions, creativity and several other aspects of the mind studied through methodologies encompassing neuroscience and computer science. There is a strong emphasis on research projects and exposure to various theoretical and experimental studies in Cognitive Science. The Centre and the University provide an ideal environment for study and research in Cognitive Science. Allahabad University has already an undergraduate combination of courses in psychology, mathematics and computer science, which provides a solid base for teaching programme of this kind at the postgraduate level.
