Abstract

Cognitive Neuroscience, a discipline that aims to understand the mind and the brain with psychological and neurophysiological approaches, is a relatively young field in the history of humans' scientific endeavor. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it is deeply rooted in the fundamentals of Cognitive Psychology, combined with modern approaches such as brain imaging techniques to unravel the mystery behind the mind and the brain. The field of Cognitive Neuroscience has seen a surge of interest over the past decade, and this is true in the world as well as in Taiwan. Here we briefly review the history of the development of Cognitive Neuroscience in Taiwan, and acknowledge several pioneers whose early effort gave rise to this field. We also aim to emphasize the many facets of Cognitive Neuroscience in Taiwan by introducing different researchers from various specialties, as well as their recent progress, to the readership. It is on the shoulders of these giants that we stand and hope for a bright future for Cognitive Neuroscience in Taiwan.
