Centre for Cognitive Science at TU Darmstadt

Establishing cognitive science at the Technische Universität Darmstadt is a long-term commitment across multiple departments (see Members to get an impression on the interdisciplinary of the supporting groups and departments). The TU offers a strong foundation including several established top engineering groups in Germany, a prominent computer science department (which is among the top four in Germany), a psychology department emphasizing a natural science approach, a biology department emphasizing a systems approach, and a strong support of interdisciplinarity throughout the university.

The Core Members form our specific scientific approach and turn the Centre for Cognitive Science into a highly attractive research environment for computational cognitive science and for developing cognitive systems.

    Humans learn to blink strategically

    hoch3, Mai 2018, Seite 19

    Eye blinks serve the purpose of maintaining healthy vision but during a blink visual information processing is interrupted. While a multitude of medical, cognitive, and psychological factors have been shown to influence blinking, the present study establishes quantitatively how human blinking behavior is dynamically adapted to environmental task demands.

    Q&A – Studying Cognitive Science @ TU Darmstadt

    The TU Darmstadt will offer both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Cognitive Science. Although we aim to complete these programs within 2018 to welcome first students of Cognitive Science in 2019, a first set of Q&A can already be provided.
