Research Cluster 3: Brain and Learning

Brain and Learning develops the exceptional research and educational opportunities at the intersection of the neuroscience, cognitive science, and science-of-learning fields.  This research cluster promotes campus-wide neuroscientific research and integrates such research into education.

Our goal is to blend the unique mix of strengths at NTU in neuroscience, cognitive science, psychology, biological sciences, computer science, design science, engineering and education. Such work will improve our understanding of how the brain works, optimize health states (physical, intellectual, socioemotional) across the lifespan - from early childhood to older adulthood – and employ science-based development of new learning interventions that maximize the potential of every learner.
