The Department of Psychology at the University of Memphis invites applications
from prospective graduate students with an interest in cognitive psychology and
the cognitive sciences. The cognitive faculty at Memphis specializes in four
1) Basic research on cognitive processes used in the encoding, storage, and
retrieval of linguistic and non-linguistic information.
2) Psycholinguistics and discourse, specifically the processes and knowledge
structures used in understanding and producing written and spoken language.
3) Learning technologies, including how developments in computer science and
computational modeling can be applied to learning with the goal of applying
principles of cognitive science to educational practice via technology to create
automated learning environments.
4) Computational and statistical modeling, including advances in computational
linguistics, natural language processing, multinomial processing tree models, and
PhD training in the cognitive specialization includes activities within one or more of
these themes through opportunities for exciting interdisciplinary collaborations.
Training also draws upon the Institute for Intelligent Systems (IIS), an active
cognitive science research community, which includes faculty from the
Departments of Psychology, Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology,
Computer Science, Education, Educational Technology, Engineering, English,
Mathematical Sciences, Philosophy, and Physics.
