Aims and Scope

Cognitive science is the study of how the mind works, addressing functions such as perception and action, memory and learning, language and communication, reasoning and problem solving, artificial intelligence, decision-making, emotion and consciousness. By its very nature, this field highlights the interrelationships among the traditionally self-contained disciplines of Cognitive Biology; Computer Science; Economics; Linguistics; Neuroscience; Philosophy; and Psychology; each of these is thus represented as a major topic covered by Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Cognitive Science.  This journal will review research from all these fields with the potential to illuminate how the mind is structured, how it has evolved, how it develops through life, and how its functions are instantiated in neural circuits and computations.
