Cognitive science

Cognitive science is usually defined as the scientific study either of mind or of intelligence.

Practically every formal introduction to cognitive science stresses that it is a highly interdisciplinary academic area, in which psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, philosophy, and computer science, as well as artificial intelligence, anthropology and biology are its specialized or applied branches.
