    • Cognitive neuroscience is a young field (Mike Gazzaniga, considered the godfather of cognitive neuroscience, and George Miller, a founder of the field of cognitive psychology, coined the term in 1977) that uses techniques and theories from several disciplines, including cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy as a means to understand how the human brain creates the mind. UCA graduates with a minor in cognitive neuroscience will be able to demonstrate to employers and graduate school admissions committees that they have multiple interests and skills and can use a variety of intellectual tools to solve complex problems. Careers in cognitive neuroscience include telecommunications, medical analysis, computer-human interaction, artificial intelligence, linguistic analysis and human performance testing.

      Students completing the cognitive neuroscience minor will be able to:

      • Develop strategies to solve complex problems creatively and flexibly
      • Effectively communicate via spoken, written and electronic media the principles and concepts of brain and mind to scientists, other students, and the public
      • Cultivate a basic understanding of the major sub-disciplines of cognitive neuroscience
