The Institute of Cognitive and Decision Sciences is dedicated to exploring the workings of the mind and brain and how they affect human behavior and social interaction. Our goals are to advance the empirical study and theoretical understanding of  cognition, culture and communication from an interdisciplinary perspective. In pursuing those goals, the Institute will promote the integration of diverse methods and theories from the social, human and life sciences.

ICDS provides an intellectual home to a range of scholars from various UO campus units, including Anthropology, Psychology, Economics, Biology, and Political Science and, additionally, from local research institutes and the community. Intellectual interests center on cognitive neuroscience, decision sciences, and evolutionary studies. Read more
