Cognitive Science is a multi-disciplinary field, which is young and rapidly growing. At the CBCS Journal Club, we encourage critical discussion on the diverse research areas that fall under the umbrella of Cognitive Science. Sessions are lively and throw light on how scientific research is done.
The CBCS Journal Club meets bi-monthly. Each session is led by a presenter and a discussant, decided on a volunteer basis. Published research is presented. Papers are circulated a week in advance – for listeners to read, then attend the session, if they wish to. Sessions have a 1 ½ hour duration and take place at the Centre, on Saturdays.
Participation in the Club is open to all members of CBCS.
