Better understanding perception, thinking and action

TU bundles research in the profile topic Cognitive Science


What makes human agency so intelligent and adaptive has become one of the key research questions of our time. Possible answers will change what we know about human beings and are likely to revolutionize how new technologies will be developed. TU Darmstadt has bundled research in this area in the profile topic Cognitive Science.

Thinking, feeling, perceiving – how does it work?

The aim is to better understand how humans perceive, think and act and to reproduce human-like behaviour in machines. Researchers from the profile topic are involved in the project “The Adaptive Mind (TAM)”, which has submitted a full application for the Cluster of Excellence funding line as part of the Excellence Strategy of the German federal and state governments.
