The main objective of the discipline of Cognitive Science is to provide a framework for bringing all the many disciplines that study the mind together into a cohesive whole. Students in our program draw on psychology, linguistics, computer science, philosophy, neuroscience, and anthropology, among other fields, to illuminate how the human mind works, and why it works the way it does. Many influential ideas within cognitive science originated at Berkeley. The program draws on over forty affiliated faculty from a variety of departments, and is closely integrated with cognitive science research efforts across the campus.
Congratulations to Paul Li for being named a Lecturer Teaching Fellow for the 18-19 academic year. The program, administered by the Center for Teaching and Learning, supports Fellows in generating dynamic tools and resources for enriching and/or innovating teaching practices on campus.
