Welcome To Our Department

Cognitive Science is the study of the mind - how it comes to be, what it is, and what it does. Researchers and practitioners in cognitive science come from a variety of conventional academic disciplines. Computer scientists, psychologists, neuroscientists, linguists, philosophers have all contributed to this exciting synthesis of insight into how the mind works. These insights are all the more useful now in trying to construct artificial human-like systems.
