The worldwide growth in cognitive science research is reflected in the growth of research capacity at the Institute of Cognitive Science. The number of core faculty, and graduate students has steadily increased in the last few years. In early 2007 the construction of the VSIM building was completed. VSIM is the new home of a number of interdisciplinary research laboratories where a significant number of cognitive research projects are carried out.
