Cognitive Sciences is a multidisciplinary science degree combining different perspectives and research methodologies and applying them to mental processes such as perception, learning, memory, language, cognition, decision-making, creativity, emotions, group relations, and consciousness. The material, research methods, and findings are anchored in several key fields: psychology and the study of the processes that enable mental processes and their behavioral expression; computer science and information systems (disciplines focusing on the computational aspect of intelligent systems), neuroscience (the biological, physiological, and anatomical aspects of human behavior and their neural networks), philosophy (the study of assumptions and axioms, such as mental representation, computation analogy, consciousness, and semantics) and linguistics (the study of the cognitive system of language). Cognitive sciences uniquely combines approaches and results from many disciplines to discover the underlying processes behind mental phenomena.
