Cognitive Science Students' Association


The purpose of the Cognitive Science Students’ Association of York University is to unite all students with an interest in Cognitive Science and to provide a forum for which to exercise this interest. We are a multi-faceted community where we, as an association, put forth opportunities, facilitate discussions and instigate curiosity about the mind and its many faculties in hopes to ultimately play our part in allowing the field of Cognitive Science to flourish.

"University is a place to learn, but not only from lectures and books - learning from the minds of others is how we grow as people."
