About Us

Welcome to the Cognitive Science undergraduate page made by undergraduates. This will be a platform to promote the Cognitive Science Association (CSA), as well as a resource to build connections and get help with any Cognitive Science related classes.

The purpose of the CSA is to empower all students interested in Cognitive Science and related majors by creating a tight-knit community through interactions with guest speakers, professional development, research opportunities, and just having fun together. Most importantly, the CSA wants to help the cognitive sciences community have more opportunities to learn and volunteer, as well as have peer academic support.

Make sure to check out the Professor Spotlights page under "Resources" to learn about labs, research, and advice from our interviews of Cognitive Science Professors!

Join our Discord for Announcements, Opportunities, Interesting Research Summaries, and to talk to the Board and select Professors!

    What is Cognitive Science?

    "Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary, scientific study of the mind and its processes. It examines the nature, the tasks, and the functions of cognition (in a broad sense). Cognitive scientists study intelligence and behavior, with a focus on how nervous systems represent, process, and transform information. Mental faculties of concern to cognitive scientists include language, perception, memory, attention, reasoning, and emotion; to understand these faculties, cognitive scientists borrow from fields such as linguistics, psychology, artificial intelligence, philosophy, neuroscience, and anthropology."
