Position: PGDCSHF Student (2020-2021)
Categories: Student

Degrees: B.Sc. Psychology

Research Interests: Stress and depression

About: I am interested in understanding the underlying mechanisms of stress and depression to develop novel therapeutics. I am also a part of Project Encephalon, a student-led organization in neuroscience, where we work to make neuroscience more accessible and inclusive. When not in the lab you might find me teaching neuroscience to someone or playing football.

About the Course: The Cognitive Science course brings together a lot of disciplines and exposes you to them. This allows different perspectives to mix. The students enrolled in the course are also from varied backgrounds, which helps to look at different problems through a wide range of lenses.

Thesis: Inflammation and Depression
My Research dissertation tries to explore a possible link between Inflammation and depression. I am doing this work along with Harleen Kaur from the department itself, while Dr Parul Bali and Dr. Piyush Parimoo shall be guiding us. The dissertation component of the course is really helpful as it provides research experience to students who hadn’t been exposed to research earlier. The faculty also encourages you to select your own topics and thus you are allowed to explore your research interests.

About:I have completed my M.Phil in Philosophy from Madras Christian College in 2019. My research work is on ‘The study on False Beliefs as Probabilistic Knowledge through Conspiracy Theories’. However, I want to pursue my career in academics and broaden my research in cognitive science.

About the Course: This is a very interactive course which gives a flavor of how cognitive science is not only useful in research and academics, but in day to day life. The diversity of the class enables me to learn more and to expand the horizon of the knowledge set in various fields like neuroscience, computer science, statistics and many more.

Research: In my research dissertation I am planning to analyze the belief system in conspiracy theories. Why people believe in strange things? How it is necessary to take conspiracy theories seriously? What are the epistemic vices or virtues of human character involved in believing conspiracy theories? These are very broader questions of a very narrow debate.

Research Interests: QUANTUM COGNITION

About: Myself Vishal, I have done M.Sc(Physics) and B.Ed Special Education In Learning Disability from Panjab University .

About the Course: Cognitive Science is the study of human mind and brain, focusing on how mind represents and manipulates knowledge and how mental representations and processes are realized in the brain. The field is highly trans-disciplinary in nature, combining ideas, principles and methods of psychology, computer science, linguistics, philosophy, neuroscience etc. In Indian scenario which is full of diversity, it is important to foster scientific research in interdisciplinary field of Cognitive Science for better understanding of Indian mind sets, languages and cognitive disorders etc

Research: Quantum cognition is a new research program that uses mathematical principles from quantum theory as a framework to explain human cognition, including judgment and decision making, concepts, reasoning, memory, and perception. This research is not concerned with whether the brain is a quantum computer. Instead, it uses quantum theory as a fresh conceptual framework and a coherent set of formal tools for explaining puzzling empirical findings in psychology. In this introduction, we focus on two quantum principles as examples to show why quantum cognition is an appealing new theoretical direction for psychology: complimentary, which suggests that some psychological measures have to be made sequentially and that the context generated by the first measure can influence responses to the next one, producing measurement order effects, and superposition, which suggests that some psychological states cannot be defined with respect to definite values but, instead, that all possible values within the superposition have some potential for being expressed. We present evidence showing how these two principles work together to provide a coherent explanation for many divergent and puzzling phenomena in psychology.
