Understanding cognition, which includes processes such as attention, perception, memory, reading and language, is one of the greatest scientific challenges of our time. As well as deciphering the workings of the healthy mind and brain, cognitive and brain scientists also investigate disorders such as anxiety, autism, dyslexia, post-traumatic stress, and schizophrenia.
