„Virtual and Augmented Reality“

Development in the field of virtual and augmented reality is gradually taking up speed and could well advance to become the next top focus in cognitive science research for the coming years.

On 26 October the ICO InnovationsCentrum Osnabrück presented the "Treffpunkt Innovation 2017" with state-of-the-art information, discussions and demonstrations about VR & AR.

"Die Zukunft im Visier" summarizes this highly interesting event, with participation of the Neurobiopsychology lab:

Der Sprache auf der Spur! DFG fördert neues Forschungsprojekt im Osnabrücker Kindersprachlabor

Wie schaffen es Babys, Wortbedeutungen und geordnete Muster in der Sprache zu entdecken? Warum lernen wir sprachliche Regeln in der Kindheit so viel leichter als im Erwachsenenalter?

Um diese Fragen zu untersuchen, fördert die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) ab 1. Oktober 2017 über drei Jahre ein Projekt am Institut für Kognitionswissenschaft der Universität Osnabrück.

What is Cognitive Science?

Many Universities nowadays offer courses or study programs in the field of "Cognitive Science". But when asked to summarize what this field actually is, even senior students struggle to answer.

This movie, created by Cognitive Science students from Osnabrück, Germany, tries to give an insight into the different disciplines that make up their subject of study.
