Cognitive Science Program

Cognitive Science is an exciting area of interdisciplinary research that seeks to understand one of the greatest mysteries of the universe — the nature and evolution of mind. Cognitive Science programs typically involve a broad range of faculty who specialize in areas such as Psychology and Neuroscience, Linguistics and Psycholinguistics, Computer Science and Robotics, as well as Logic and the Philosophy of Mind.

NC State’s Cognitive Science Program, which is central to the Logic and Cognitive Science Initiative (LACSI), is supported by a strong faculty drawn from the fields of Psychology, Neurobiology, Computer Science, Linguistics, and Philosophy.
