About us



Cognition Today is a website which focuses on 2 things:

  • Explain concepts & research in psychology & the related sciences
  • Create actionable insights using the research

You’ll see that we don’t just summarize recent research in a news format. We consolidate research from many areas of psychology & the harder sciences into themed topics. 

Our goal is to make research accessible and comprehensible to the lay-person. 

I am Aditya Shukla and I run this site. After my master’s in Clinical Psychology, I began applying my understanding of the psychological sciences in many areas: Music learning, Learning design, App design, Website Copy, Management, Industry level ideation, etc. 

What I noticed is that people don’t really understand what goes on inside the head. They don’t know that there is an abundance of research just piling up in academic circles which can potentially help them solve problems. 

That became my mission: Let’s create content that disseminates research on how we think, behave, and feel. And, what happens deeper inside the mind/brain.

I set out to blog on my previous site: coolpsychologicalinsights.blogspot.com;  which got some traction, btw – about 300 visitors a day. Wasn’t much, but was enough to show me that people want to learn more about their human-ness. Moving to Cognition Today was the next step. This brings us to today. 

Then, I thought let’s make this big. Fortunately, I’ve had help from friends to improve my site and a few guest authors to contribute quality content!

We are here to demystify the brain & show you applications of how psychological research can be used. 

Hope you enjoy your stay here. Do write to CT if you have something to share. 🙂
