SAGE Center for the Study of the Mind
The SAGE Center for the Study of the Mind at the University of California, Santa Barbara is a catalyst for interdisciplinary study of the relationship of brain and mind. Some of the most exciting areas in cognitive neuroscience lie at the boundaries of neuroscience and psychology, powered by new advanced analytical technologies and tools in physics, chemistry, molecular biology and genetics, engineering and mathematics.
The Center integrates a wide range of scholarly endeavors and technologies in the humanities, social sciences and the sciences. These will include, for example, the metaphysics and the philosophy of the mind; methodologies in the social and behavioral sciences; and the relatively recent tools that have been developed in the sciences such as functional neuro-imaging, genetic techniques, computational modeling and immersive virtual environment technology.
