Cognitive scientists are in disciplines as
diverse as computer science, educational and cognitive development,
linguistics, neuroscience, neurobiology, philosophy, psychology,
robotics and mathematics. But we have common interests in the general field of cognitive science, arguably the most important development in the study of human thinking in the past twenty years.
The human mind is viewed as using
computational processes that by definition cross disciplinary
boundaries. Progress in understanding how we comprehend the world can
only be made when we break the standard disciplinary lines and work
together to probe the complexity that makes human thinking unique.
This program is a
platform for scientists across disciplines to interact and offer
support for each other's research and instructional efforts.
