Center for Cognitive Sciences (COGSCI)

image of COGSCIThe Center for Cognitive Science is the representation on the University at Buffalo campus of an academic and private-sector movement, named "cognitive science", that has been expanding over the last two decades both in the U.S. and abroad. The aim of this development is to investigate the nature of cognition, i.e., of intellective processes as exhibited either by the human mind or by computer. Most centrally, cognitive science is the study of how the mind works, both in its conceptual organization and in its computational and neural infrastructure. Accordingly, cognitive science has brought together researchers from a number of traditionally separate disciplines -- primarily, computer science, psychology, linguistics, philosophy, anthropology , and neuroscience -- in order to build a new and unified understanding of cognition that is compounded from the different disciplinary perspectives and that moves beyond them. | More »
