2526Cognitive science  

Scope note

  • The interdisciplinary research field that seeks to account for intelligent activity, whether exhibited by living organisms (especially adult humans) or machines. Cognitive science is unique in its basic tenet that cognitive processes are computations, a perspective which allows for direct comparison of natural and artificial intelligence. Cognitive psychology and artificial intelligence constitute its core, while a number of other disciplines, such as neuroscience, linguistics, anthropology, and philosophy, as well as other fields of psychology, such as developmental psychology, are more peripheral contributors.
