There is a lot of great Cognitive Science-related research being conducted at McGill. Our degree allows us
to get involved in a multitude of projects, studying topics including computational cognition, psychosis,
language acquisition and more! Primarily, this is done by taking COGS 401 and/or COGS 444 — research courses
for course credit — or by volunteering in a lab. Many students usually start off as volunteers to gain a
sense of what research entails. Depending on the lab environment, the professor, and the interests of the student,
the research experience can take many forms.
