„From Mind to Brain“: Cognitive Science and Cognitive Neuroscience

Cognitive Science

Cognitive Science is an interdisciplinary research field to study the mind, intelligence and the brain.

Within the hexagon of the main research fields Psychology, Neuroscience, Linguistics, HumanitiesPhilosophy, Education, Anthropology, Artificial Intelligence and Economics, research in Cognitive Science deepens the understanding from mind to brain, from behaviour to neurophysiological phenomena, from culture, art and social thinking to their brain based underpinnings. 

Picture Research

Cognitive Neuroscience

Cognitive Neuroscience combines different scientific research areas in which the structure and functioning of nervous systems are examined.

Due to the variety of methods used, neuroscientific research is conducted by scientists from many different disciplines such as physiology, psychology, medicine, biology, computer science, or mathematics together with related scientific fields such as information technology or robotics.
