Cognitive Science

Information for prospective and current students of Cognitive Science

Philosophers and scientists have long speculated about the nature of the human mind and the role of language in making the human mind what it is. Recent developments – in fields as diverse as robotics, brain imaging, anthropology and speech technology – bring a host of new perspectives to our quest to understand our own inner workings. Cognitive Science brings together scholars from linguistics, psychology, philosophy, neuroscience and computer science.
