The application for the 2024 Poster Session will open in March.
The Cognitive and Brain Sciences Undergraduate Research Poster Session is a signature feature of the Center's annual CogFest programming series. The poster session provides interaction between faculty and students from across the university who are exploring questions related to human cognition, including learning, memory, perception, language, and decision-making, from behavioral, applied, computational modeling, and cognitive neuroscience perspectives. This event recognizes the significant contributions to research made by OSU undergraduates and promotes ongoing research in the cognitive science field.
Submissions involving undergraduate research in any area of cognitive or brain sciences are welcome. The poster session is an opportunity to share ongoing research with the cognitive science community at Ohio State and gather expert feedback on projects. If a research project is ongoing, a research-in-progress summary may be submitted in lieu of an abstract.
