CogSciNiš Forum, SANU Research Centre - University of Niš
interdisciplinary field of research in the domains of philosophy of
mind, cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistics,
AI theory, cognitive anthropology and other disciplines.
Its origins can be traced back to the fifties, when researchers in
various disciplines started developing theories based on complex mental
representations and computational procedures (the computational theory
of mind). In mid-1970s, the first Cognitive
was founded, followed by the first cognitive
journal named Cognitive Science
then, over 70 universities around the globe have formed curricula
focused on cognitive science(s).
In Niš, various researchers employ a cognitive approach in the domains
of neurology, psychiatry, linguistics, psychology and electronic
engineering. So far, there have been no instutionalized forms of
cooperation among them. The main aim of this project will be to promote
interdisciplinary cooperation in the field of cognitive science by
organizing meetings, seminars and lectures, as well as by initiating
international cooperation with various institutions and creating an
academic curriculum fully devoted to cognitive science. The Forum's
activities will involve not only academic staff, but also a number of
students interested in the field.
CogSciNiš Forum is a part of the SANU Research Centre and is based at
the University of Niš.
