Head of the
Interdisciplinary Major in Brain
and Cognitive Sciences
Prof. Byoung-Kyong Min
Through interdisciplinary research across various disciplines such as neuroscience, cognitive science, psychology, and information and communications, the interdisciplinary major enhances understanding of the brain and psychological mechanisms, decodes mental states using brain signals, selectively controls brain functions, and explores how the brain processes vast amounts of information. It promotes interdisciplinary research in brain and cognitive sciences with applications in robot/device control, interactions between AI systems and the brain, diagnosis and prediction of brain diseases, brain-based entertainment, neuromarketing, brain-based senior-friendly and rehabilitative industry, and intelligent humanoid robots. The interdisciplinary major will provide basic knowledge and practicum opportunities in brain engineering, psychology, neuroscience, and computer science to foster talent in graduates capable of making substantial contributions to the discovery of new principles as well as the development of novel technology in brain and cognitive sciences.
