Cognitive science is an interdisciplinary study of cognition. As a discipline, Cognitive science predominantly interfaces with philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, computer science, anthropology and linguistics. It has been accepted as one of the four pillars of knowledge of the twenty first century along with nano-, bio-, and information technology. Cognitive Science research has wide range of applications and is critically important for Education, Health, Social behavior and Technological Development.
