Centre for Cognition, Computation and Culture

The main aim of the Centre for Cognition, Computation and Culture (CCCC) is to understand cognitive processes including those related to cultural differences. Situated in the Ben Pimlott Building at Goldsmiths, the CCCC has state-of-the-art research labs including Cognitive Neuroscience (Psychology) and the Goldsmiths Digital Studios, where the emphasis is on the creative use of computing and information technology in music and the visual arts, and the computational modelling of cognition.


The CCCC lead a proposal from major research institutes in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Sweden for an EU call within the 6th Framework Programme on "What it means to be human". Our proposal on "Stages in the Evolution and Development of Sign Use" (SEDSU) received funding of 1.5million to be administered from Goldsmiths (3 years from April 2005).
