Awesome Cognitive Science

As the name goes, our aim is to create a reference guide for all the information that could serve as a great guiding point to someone who is getting started in research that lies at the intersection of the beautifully meshed fields studied under a catch-all called Cognitive Science.

Maintained by: Abi Aryan

To contribute, please go through the Contribution Guidelines first. Please feel free to contribute by opening a new issue/pull request or responding to existing ones.

Why Study this Intersection?

Cognitive Science refers to the study of thought, learning, and mental organization, which draws on aspects of psychology, linguistics, philosophy, and computer science.
