Program Description: The Institute of Cognitive Science's areas of research span cognitive phenomena across humans, machines and animals and include in particular the following emphases: learning and memory, lexical semantics, language processing, creativity, evolutionary approaches, and the philosophy of mind and of cognitive science. The Institute supports empirical, theoretical and computer-based approaches to cognition and cognitive processes.
