Cog­ni­tive Science

TagLast edit: 12 Apr 2021 20:29 UTC by plaskod

Cognitive science draws upon a variety of different disciplines to try to describe and explain the way humans think. It heavily involves neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy. It differs from neuroscience in that it focuses less on relating structure to function, and more on using many approaches to form higher-level models to predict behaviour.
