About Us

Institute for Cognitive Science Studies which strives to promote this new branch of science and technology in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Established in 1998 as a non-governmental institution, ICSS is offering M.S. and Ph.D. programs in different sub-fields of cognitive science and technologies and enjoys to have various animal and human labs equipped with the instruments and facilities needed to conduct state of the art research in the field. Cooperation with other leading universities in Iran and abroad is one of the key strategies of ICSS in promoting the field, and in this regard, many prominent Iranian and foreign professors participate in ICSS educational and research activities.
