The Center for Mind & Cognition (CMC) is an interdisciplinary platform at the Ruhr-University Bochum. The objective of the Center for Mind & Cognition is to investigate the enigmatic and at the same time fascinating nature of the mind and its constitutive cognitive processes by tapping the full potential of interdisciplinary collaborations. A better understanding of cognition from multiple perspectives will contribute to the development of an empirically anchored integrative understanding of the architecture of mind and cognition.
