About Cognitive Science

About Cognitive Science

Cognitive Science is the multidisciplinary study of cognition in humans and machines. The goal is to understand the principles of intelligence and thought with the hope that this will lead to better understanding of the mind and of learning, and to the development of intelligent devices that constructively extend human abilities.
