Cognitive Science Program Wordmark

About the Cognitive Science Program

 

Cognitive science is the study of how intelligent beings (including people, animals, and machines) perceive, act, know, and think.

It explores the process and content of thought as observed in individuals, distributed through communities, manifested in the structure and meaning of language, modeled by algorithms, and contemplated by philosophies of mind.

Its models are formulated using concepts drawn from many disciplines, including psychology, linguistics, logic, computer science, anthropology, and philosophy, and they are tested using evidence from psychological experiments, clinical studies, field studies, computer simulations, and neurophysiological observation.
