OPEN MIND combines graduate studies and advanced research in a variety of areas of cognitive science. The programme proceeds along two tracks: a teaching track, open to graduate students and involving courses, seminars and individual work, leading to a Master in Cognitive Science; and a scientific communication track, open to a larger audience of researchers, teachers, students and a general public interested in cognitive science, and consisting of intense and well-focused thematic workshops that explore in depths important topics of wide scientific and pedagogical interest in cognitive science from a relevant variety of disciplines.
OPEN MIND makes a special and sustained effort on both tracks to cover new and important topics that go beyond the traditional core of cognitive science and reach new and exciting domains in comparative, developmental and evolutionary psychology, cognitive linguistics and pragmatics, social neuroscience and neuropsychology, cognitive anthropology, animal cognition and cognitive archaeology, among others.
This open-mindedness should be attractive and instructive for a large spectrum of scholars, students and other interested participants from a variety of countries and disciplines, with a variety of backgrounds. Both Master classes and workshops will be taught by an international group of experts from the relevant disciplines of cognitive science.
