Introduction

Many faculty members and physicians in China Medical University and Hospital engage in neuroscience, cognitive science, and psychological science research. In view of cohering such research activities, we established the Graduate Institute of Neural and Cognitive Sciences (GINCS) (Masters Program) in August 2007. GINCS, being the only one of its kind in Central Taiwan, aims at training research personnel in neural and cognitive science. Graduate students in GINCS will learn the knowledge and research methods in neural and cognitive sciences, and will be trained to think independently during experimentation, thus developing logical and creative scientific thinking.
