We will begin with a historical introduction, followed by an investigation into the concepts of information processing and representation. Later in the term we will discuss the manner in which Cognitive Science integrates various disciplines (psychology, linguistics, philosophy, neuroscience, etc), examine information processing models of the mind, and discuss new horizons in the field (e.g., embodiment, consciousness). Although this course serves as a core introductory credit for all Cognitive Science majors, it is also intended to be accessible to students in other disciplines, whether or not those disciplines are connected to Cognitive Science.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
