The Master's degree requires at least 15 credit units and a thesis and may be completed within one year, although most students take longer. The Master's thesis researh will be designed in consultation with each student's advisory committee early in Year 1. One goal of the Master's thesis research is the production of a "publishable unit" of substantial research in the first year of study.
Cognition and Neuroscience is flourishing at the University of Saskatchewan. With on-going programs of research in areas such as mathematical cognition, reasoning, unconscious perception, reading, laterality, cognitive evolution, recovery of function, kindling, spatial ability and joint action. The cognition and neuroscience faculty have a lot to offer both undergraduate and graduate students. Listed below are a number of the Cognitive and Neuroscience research areas in the Cognition and Neuroscience Program.
The Cognitive Science Laboratory has seen many Undergraduate, Honours, Master's and Doctoral students pass through its doors. Laboratory Alumni have gone on to pursue employment or further training as (among other things) speech therapists, clinical psychologists, social workers, and research assistants. Under the supervision of Dr. Campbell or Dr. Thompson, other students have completed their graduate training and have gone on to prestigious Post-Doctoral placements and faculty positions at other Canadian universities.
Research in the Cognitive Neuroscience of Action and Interaction Lab examines the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying people’s ability to perform actions alone and in coordination with other people. Recent projects have examined the mechanisms that allow people to a) precisely time their actions (e.g., to achieve the precise synchrony of ensemble music performance), b) monitor their own and others’ actions to ensure that shared goals are achieved, and c) maintain a sense of agency or control over their actions when coordinating with others. Experimental paradigms range from simple button-pressing tasks to analogs of ensemble music performance.
