This course introduces topics in the Cognitive Sciences. As a survey
course, it touches on all aspects of this interdisciplinary and
rapidly-evolving field. The course addresses topics such as the mind
and brain, artificial intelligence, embodied cognition, cyborgs,
robotics, social interactions and complex systems, the wisdom of
crowds, social foraging, and the representation of knowledge.
Special units may involve topics such as Mindstorms Robotics and
video games in society.

Cognitive Science courses, but serves as an introduction to the
field and is recommended for students who are considering a
Cognitive Science major or minor.
