Welcome to the Centre for Mind in Society

Understanding the interaction between the individual human being and the modern social world is one of the key intellectual challenges of our time. The Centre for Mind in Society investigates how an individual’s cognitive capacities structure, and are structured by, social environments within which the individual is embedded. The Centre brings together researchers from the psychological, social, linguistic, computational, medical and biological sciences with an interest in this question, using a wide range of methodologies, spanning computational modeling of neural anatomy, to quantitative modeling of large data-sets, to the philosophical and historical analysis of thought and language.
