Mind, Technology, & Society (MTS) Talk Series

Our interdisciplinary talk series, funded by a generous gift from Professors Robert Glushko and Pamela Samuelson, brings to UC Merced world class scholars and scientists with research interests related to cognitive science. The series aims to promote cognitive science, and talks are attended by students, faculty, and others in the community. There is no cost to attending the talks and they are open to the general public.
