Cognitive science provides not only intuition but the science behind the intuition

The Department of Cognitive Science is committed to transcending theoretical boundaries rooted in traditional disciplines in pursuit of a scientific account of cognition. To that end, the department promotes the study of learning, perception, action, and interaction in the physical, social, and cultural world. The predominant approach is rooted in an inter-disciplinary vision employing ideas and techniques from a number of disciplines, including anthropology, computer science, ethology, electrical engineering, linguistics, neurology, neurosciences, philosophy, psychology, and sociology. We aim not only to contribute to theory but also to apply what we learn, e.g., through design.
