Description: Cognitive science is a basic science of mental operations in humans, animals, and artificial systems. It is a highly interdisciplinary endeavor that draws on philosophy, psychology, biology, linguistics, and computer science, among other traditional disciplines. This course provides an integrated introduction to the primary empirical methods for studying the human mind. Students will learn how the scientific method is applied to study mental information representation, manipulation, and utilization in natural and artificial cognitive systems. It will teach students to understand and evaluate existing methodological approaches as well as recognize what is necessary to replicate results. Topics include the philosophical foundations of cognitive science, basic methods of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, computational modeling, data analysis, and ethical responsibility when conducting cognitive research.
