LABORATORY
CONSORTIUM for the ADVANCEMENT of COGNITIVE SCIENCE (CFACS)   CFACS   was   established   to   provide   a   common   environment   and   vision   for   budding and   established   scientists   at   Ohio   University   (and   affiliated   institutions)   from   which to   tackle   with   unprecedented   scientific   rigor   and   interdisciplinary   fervor   some   of   the most   fundamental   unsolved   problems   in   Cognitive   Science   and   Psychology. To   this end,   our   core   mission   is   to   approach   the   study   of   the   human   and   non-human animal   mind   and   brain   with   the   same   kind   of   methodological   thoroughness   and definitional   precision   that   physicists   employ   in   their   study   of   the   physical   world: namely,    via    the    development    and    testing    of    mathematical    and    computational models    of    behavior    and    cognition,    and    via    fastidious    empirical    research.    Our second   goal   is   to   use   reliable,   replicated,   robust,   and   accurate   findings   from   the study   of   perception,   conception,   and   memory   to   try   to   better   understand   the   nature of   phenomena   researched   in   fields   such   as   Ethology,   Affective   Psychology,   and Clinical   Psychology. The   ultimate   aim   is   to   develop   a   unified   and   precise   science   of the mind and brain in the spirit of the best Psychophysics research.
