VR facilities of MBLab.


Philosophy of mind, attention, perception, and social behavior, judgment and decision making, consciousness, and cognitive modeling are the leading research concentration areas of Mind & Behavior Lab. In addition to the main psychological themes of cognitive modeling, artificial intelligence, artificial general intelligence, and human-computer interaction are also the key concepts that have been planned to be carried out.


If you are an undergraduate or graduate student who wants to study these topics in MBLab, you can find a chance to study here in an internship program. The internship consists of both theoretical and empirical work, related to ongoing and/or new projects. Graduate students are expected to bring their research questions to the MBLab. We are open to accepting new ideas and projects in the line of MBLab's concentration areas.
