About the Authors
  • The Third Edition of this popular and engaging text consolidates the interdisciplinary streams of cognitive science to present a unified narrative of cognitive science as a discipline in its own right. It teaches students to apply the techniques and theories of the cognitive scientist's 'toolkit' - the vast range of methods and tools that cognitive scientists use to study the mind. Thematically organized, Cognitive Science underscores the problems and solutions of cognitive science rather than more narrowly examining individually the subjects that contribute to it - psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, and so on. The generous use of examples, illustrations, and applications demonstrates how theory is applied to unlock the mysteries of the human mind. Drawing upon cutting-edge research, the text has been substantially revised, with new material on Bayesian approaches to the mind and on deep learning. An extensive on-line set of resources is available to aid instructors and students alike. Sample syllabi show how the text can support a variety of courses, making it a highly flexible teaching and learning resource at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

    • Offers a popular and highly readable text that consolidates the interdisciplinary streams of cognitive science into a unified introduction to the field
    • Provides a strong focus on dynamical systems, situated cognition and robotics, and mindreading
    • Thought-provoking exercises within the chapters enable students to test and apply their understanding
    • Includes new chapters on Bayesian approaches to cognitive science and machine learning/deep learning
