The MARCS Institute is a vibrant interdisciplinary research institute of the University of Western Sydney (UWS), situated on the Bankstown, Campbelltown, Kingswood and Parramatta campuses. MARCS Institute contains members and collaborators from many disciplines: Medicine, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Linguistics, Psychology, Education, Music, and Communication Arts.
The MARCS Institute research focuses on the explanation and enhancement of human-human and human-machine communication. Using behavioural, neuroscience and computational approaches, we conduct pure and applied research on perceptual, cognitive, creative and social skills from infancy to adulthood, in real and virtual worlds, and within normal, heightened (e.g., performing arts) and impaired (e.g., developmental delay, sensory loss) contexts.
