Conference 2012 |
WelcomeCognitive science is an interdisciplinary effort to
understand and explain the mind. It draws on knowledge from
psychology, computer science, philosophy, linguistics,
anthropology, neuroscience, and biology, among others.
Cutting across the information and life sciences, cognitive
science is a paradigmatic multi- and inter-disciplinary
research program with enormous future societal benefits,
especially as intelligent artificial agents are becoming
part of our lives.
In recent years, Tufts has built up a world-renowned faculty
in Cognitive Science, some of whom have been prominent since
the beginnings of the field. The new joint Ph.D. program has
particular interdisciplinary strength in the area of human
language, including theoretical linguistics, psycho- and
neurolinguistics, reading and dyslexia, and computational linguistics, and it offers considerable expertise as well in
other traditional subareas of cognitive science including
animal cognition, human memory,
behavioral/cognitive/affective neuroscience, cognitive
modeling, robotics, and human computer interaction.
