Cognitive neuroscience is the study of higher cognitive functions in human and animals and its underlying neural bases. By definition, it is an integrative area of study

drawing principally from cognitive science, neuropsychology, 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.

In addition to incorporating research from numerous disciplines, cognitive neuroscience also uses a great deal of technology to study human cognition: Brain

Computational Interface (BCI).
