About

The Brain and Cognitive Sciences program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is rooted in a tradition of intensive academics and research, where rigorous coursework is coupled with hands-on, collaborative research.

Overview

About the Program

Lectures are taught by world-class faculty, and students have access to their professors in the lab. Together, they seek answers to questions about how humans think, learn, behave, and feel.
