What's Cognitive Science?
Basically:  the study of the human mind. Cognitive theory draws upon many different disciplines (neuroscience, psychology, linguistics, anthropology,  philosophy, education, artificial intelligence, computer science, etc.). Its scope of research extends from brain structure and its chemistry to higher mental processes, such as those involved in what we know as perception, memory, emotion, and consciousness and language use. These processes are studied within the context of human interaction.
