Cognitive Science

Cognitive Science is the interdisciplinary study of the mind, encompassing the study of intelligent behavior as well as the brain mechanisms and computations underlying that behavior. The field is at the intersection of several other disciplines, including philosophy (knowledge representation, logic), psychology (basic human cognition, perception, and performance), computer science (computational theory, artificial intelligence, and robotics), linguistics (theories of language structure), and cognitive neuroscience (brain mechanisms for intelligent behavior). Typical research areas of cognitive science include judgment and decision making, language comprehension and production, language acquisition, visual recognition of objects and events, goal directed movement in complex environments, and consciousness.
