The Student Organization for Cognitive Science (SOCS) is a fun way to participate in stimulating cognitive science-related activities with great people. Activities include weekly discussions about relevant and interesting topics, dinners with esteemed IU professors, lab tours, movie nights, and guest lectures (with, of course, plenty of food at each event).

2015-16 SOCS regular meetings are Tuesdays at 6:30pm in Psychology 228. Changes and cancellations are announced via SOCS Listserve announcements.

2015-16 SOCS Officers

Jack Zhang, President
Hello! My name is Jack Zhang and I am currently a Freshman majoring in Cognitive Science. The first half of my life was divided evenly between Fujian, China and New York City. That was a huge formative period in which I learned so much about the complexities of this world. That was when I first was enamored with large communities. My second half was in the quiet town of Greenwood, IN. Through the combination of those three, I have arrived at IU, a pretty perfect community for me. I discovered Cognitive Science about half a year ago; the study of the mind and its nature was absolutely fascinating in all of its facets. I liked it so much that I am also majoring in Philosophy (as well Political Science, I am also involved in student government!). Right now, I am happily situated within Jason Gold's Vision Lab, doing perceptually interesting research of my own, or at least attempting to.

Justin Stamets, Co-President
