We are enthusiastic to be holding the 13th annual Midwest Undergraduate Cognitive Science Conference virtually this spring on Saturday, April 24th, 2021.

MUCSC is a one-day research conference for undergraduates doing work related to cognitive science. We welcome students from all majors whose work relates to cognition, philosophy of mind, psychology, linguistics, artificial intelligence, or cognitive neuroscience.


Our conference is free and open to the public, but we ask that all attendees register using the form below.

Presenters do not need to register for the conference separately.

This year we are delighted to welcome Claire White as our keynote speaker along with our undergraduate presenters. She is an associate professor in the Department of Religious Studies at California State University, Northridge. You can visit her page here.

An Introduction to the Cognitive Science of Religion

In recent decades, a new scientific approach to understand, explain, and predict many features of religion has emerged. The cognitive science of religion (CSR) suggests that religion, like language or music, naturally emerges in humans with tractable similarities. This new approach has profound implications for how we understand religion.
