Cognitive Science

Cognitive science is the scientific study of the mind and its processes. What is especially exciting about cognitive science is its nature of interdisciplinary cooperation involving psychologists, philosophers, computer scientists, neuroscientists, anthropologists, biologists and linguists. Though researchers from each of these fields have long been studying the nature of thought, emotion, perception, memory, language and other aspects of cognition, cognitive science allows them to take advantage of the strengths and research in other disciplines. Different methodologies, intellectual histories and disciplinary divisions often isolate those with similar goals, and cognitive science aims to bring researchers back together. By approaching questions from a variety of perspectives, the cognitive scientist has a greater chance of finding answers to questions about cognition.
