Cognitive Science is the interdisciplinary study of the mind, its processes, and intelligence. It draws on various fields such as anthropology, philosophy, linguistics, psychology, artificial intelligence, and neuroscience. In addition to investigating the aforementioned fields, cognitive science also examines the following topics:

  • sensation and perception
  • learning, memory, and attention
  • time and space
  • brain disorders
  • social behavior
  • cognitive ethnography
  • human/ animal cognition
  • distributed cognition
  • embodied/ disembodied cognition
  • computation
  • human-computer interaction (HCI)
  • brain-computer interface (BCI)

Cognitive science uses methods such as the empirical method, neurobiological methods, field studies, and computational modeling to develop hypotheses and form theories.
