Research in Cognitive Science

Cognitive science is a multidisciplinary science of the mind and cognitive processes. Cognitive science deals with the study and explanation of such mental processes as perception, representation, emotion, consciousness, memory, reasoning, speech, communication, among others.

Drawing on the achievements of a wide range of scientific disciplines, cognitivists develop their own methods with which they try to solve the fascinating riddles of mind, intelligence, consciousness. They search for an answer to the question of what mechanisms - biological, computational or other - constitute the basis of what we call "intelligence", they ask about the role of the environment - from the physical, through the biological, to the cultural and the social - in shaping cognitive processes, and they analyse the function of language as a carrier of information and a tool of communication.The sources of inspiration and the basis for the development of cognitive science are, above all, psychology, biology, computer science, theories of artificial intelligence, linguistics, logic and philosophy. However, due to its multidisciplinary nature, cognitive science, drawing on their contributions, analyses problems from many different perspectives and uses a much wider range of methods. Consequently, cognitive science is a different science from the aforementioned traditional disciplines. Hence, the study of cognitive science has also been designed to provide its graduates with a modern education, combining elements of the humanities and social sciences with computer and natural science knowledge, while at the same time transcending the traditional divisions between the sciences.
