Foundations of Cognitive Science




Course Requirements:
The course has no requirements other than a curious mind and willingness to engage in discussions in class. Passing (50 Prozent) of short quizzes after each session (“VIPS”). BSc students can only obtain the course certificate when they have collected 10 subject (“Vp”) hours during the course of their studies.
The “Foundations of Cognitive Science” aim at giving our first-term students – but also more advanced students – a broad overview over the field of Cognitive Science, its history, interdisciplinary scope, and research areas. Content: The course will have three parts, roughly: Week 1-3: Introduction to (1) the history of Cognitive Science, (2) the Integration challenge and (3) research paradigms and research ethics, conveyed by Dr. Annette Hohenberger. Week 4-13: Each week, a representatives of our various research groups will present their area briefly (45 min impulse lecture) and then discuss questions with the (prepared) audience (45 min moderated discussion). These research groups are Computerlinguistics, Cognitive Modeling, Biologically Oriented Computer Vision, Neurobiopsychology, Comparative BioCognition, Psycho- and Neurolinguistics, Neuroinformatics, Artificial Intelligence, Philosophy of Mind and Cognition, and Situated Affectivity and Cognition. Week 14: In the last session, we will wrap up and reflect upon the course and our study field by way of a common reading and discussion, moderated by Dr. Annette Hohenberger.
The course will be held as a hybrid course.
All new-coming B.Sc. students will be registered to our online system “EXA” by the Examination Office and also receive their (passing) grade via this system. For the new-coming M.Sc. students and foreign exchange students this system is not open yet. They simply enroll to the course via stud-ip (as the B.Sc. students have to do as well).
