Brain recordings show that background noise strongly impairs children’s ability to concentrate on a single speaker
A new brain-imaging study compared the cocktail party effect between adults and children. The purpose was to understand how children can cope the often noisy surroundings in which they grow and learn.
Departments and centres
With our internationally acclaimed, high-level research, we change the world for the better. The research at the School of Science focuses on advanced energy solutions, condensed matter and materials physics, creation and transformation of technology based business, data science and artificial intelligence, health technology, neuroscience, and software engineering. We create and transform technology-based businesses, energy sciences (including nuclear engineering), and neuroscience and technology.
We currently host two Finnish Centres of Excellence in research.
To learn more about the impact we make, get to know our five departments:
Our main research areas are algebra and discrete mathematics, analysis, applied mathematics and mechanics, stochastics and statistics, and systems analysis and operations research.
The Department of Applied Physics pursues vigorous research in physical sciences and creates important industrial applications that hold great technological potential.
The Department of Computer Science provides world-class research and education in modern computer science to foster future science and society.
The Department of Industrial Engineering and Management studies and drives the transformation of technology-based business.
We study system-level dynamic functions of the human brain, mind and body.
The objective of the tenure track career system is to support professors’ academic freedom and to reach world class in research and/or artistic and professional work, teaching and activity in scientific community and academic leadership.
Let's do it together
As our partner, you will have an opportunity to contribute to the establishment of a new working culture and unique concentration of research, development and innovation.
School of Science currently hosts seven strategic centres that work to bring our strategy to life. They tie together efforts in both in research and education and strive for impact in society.
