As of Fall 2023, Brown Linguistics is an independent program separate from the CLPS department. Information on the Linguistics Program, its faculty, research, concentrations, and course offerings will be available shortly on the program's website.
Cognitive Neuroscience (COGN) is the study of higher cognitive functions in humans and its underlying neural bases. By definition, it is an integrative area of study drawing principally from cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, and linguistics. There are two broad directions which can be taken in this concentration—one is behavioral/experimental and the other is computational/modeling. In either case, the goal is to understand the nature of cognition from a neural perspective.
