How do we acquire and integrate information about the world? Do our beliefs affect the way in which we perceive the world? Is the mind like a computer? These are some of the central questions that cognitive science aims to answer.
Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary study of the mind using theories and methods from philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, anthropology, computer science, and artificial intelligence. Students will become familiar with foundational issues as well as some of the current debates about various aspects of cognition, such as perception, emotion, conceptualization, and embodied cognition.
