Cognitive Science Research Areas and Disciplines

Some researchers are focusing in bettering the technologies that cognitive scientists use. This includes computer-assisted tomography scans, positron emission tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging, which all allow cognitive scientists to map the brain in new ways. See the articles on radiology for more information.

Other researchers are using cognitive science to understand how strokes and other neural trauma, and diseases such as Alzheimer's or schizophrenia, occur, with the hope of developing solutions to these issues. Others are studying the cognitive and neural bases of human thought and reasoning to better understand processes such as mind wandering, visual and auditory perception, and selective attention.

Other scientists are working to study organic visual cognition and how it relates to computer vision, to develop more realistic human-computer interactions. See the article on artificial intelligence and robotics for more information.

Many research projects are in conjunction with those in the health sciences and medicine, such as developmental neuroscience, psychobiology, neuropsychology, neurotoxicology, and psychopharmacology. See the articles on neuroscience, neurology, pharmacology, and toxicology for more information.
