Cognitive Science is an interdisciplinary field of research dedicated to the study of the mind, spanning a wide range of questions: from the human capacity to cognize to animal cognition and artificial intelligence. Subdisciplines of cognitive science range from psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, and artificial intelligence to philosophy and anthropology.  Each discipline contributes with its perspective and disciplinary research methods to the interdisciplinary project of understanding cognition: what it is, how it works, and how we can model it.
