Organisation profile

The Institute of Cognitive Science in National Cheng Kung University was founded in 2006, and the Department of Psychology was started in 2008. The institute of Cognitive Science was merged into the Department of Psychology in 2011. With a unique view of combining interdisciplinary perspectives from social sciences, humanities, medical and engineering sciences in teaching and research, we devote to develop interdisciplinary experts in different areas, such as basic research, real-life applications and mental health. We currently has two development priorities: Mind Neuroscience National Cheng Kung University established a mental image interdisciplinary research center for the aim of inviting nearly twenty one hundred researchers of social humanities, biomedicine, imaging engineering, statistical analysis and other related fields, to involve the study of brain and mind neuroscience. The Development of Psychology particularly focuses on the issues of ‘cognitive neuroscience’, ‘emotional neuroscience,’ and ‘aging neuroscience’ research fields as the core facets to long-term foster the investigations of brain science of psychology. Applied Psychology In addition to brain activity, how mental developments and in what way that the people interact with situational context and culture must also be implemented in a variety of life applications and practice. In order to achieve the promotion of life quality of life and well-being, faculties of the Department of Psychology intend to link the basic research to practice applications for the areas of industry and psychometric applications, as well as child development.
