Vienna Cognitive Science Hub is a network of researchers at the University of Vienna active in various disciplines of Cognitive Science and Neuroscience

The overarching goal of the Vienna CogSciHub is to foster interdisciplinary research in the cognitive sciences in Vienna. A unique characteristic of our Hub is that we incorporate cognitive sciences in the broadest sense, not just “traditional” fields like psychology and computer science, but also the humanities (art history, linguistics, musicology, and philosophy), and life sciences (cognitive biology, evolution research, and neuroscience). The core topic binding these fields together is methodology: the scientists in the Hub share an empirical mind-set that involves using (and often sharing) a diverse set of methods including eye-tracking, statistical modelling, field methods, virtual reality, EEG, fMRI, and brain stimulation (TMS and tDCS). Meeting as well as office space, and shared research equipment will soon be housed in a shared center, the Vienna CogSciLabs.

At present, the three core research topics in the Vienna CogSciHub are:

  • Perception, Aesthetics, and Innovation
  • Social Cognition and Behavior
  • Communication, Language, and Music 

Planned expansions of these and other topics into neuroscience are part of Vienna CogsciHub's immediate agenda for the future.

Services

We strengthen existing research and elicit new and innovative interdisciplinary approaches by disseminating methodological expertise, providing research services in the domains of statistics, data science, a subject recruiting system, as well as seed grants for proposal writingmatchmaking for scholars of different disciplines, and access to research labs as to foster common research questions and projects. 

Associations

Educational programs associated with the CogSciHub are the ViennaDoctoralSchool CoBeNe (Vienna Doctoral School "Cognition, Behavior, Neuroscience") and MEi:CogSci (Middle European Interdisciplinary Master Programme in Cognitive Science).

 Activities
