Welcome to WikiProject Cognitive science. It is a collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of cognitive science and the organization of information and articles on this topic.

This page and its subpages contain some suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of all Wikipedians interested in the topic.

If you would like to help, you can read the guide to WikiProjects, join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Much of the collaboration is coordinated at this WikiProject's talk page.

About this WikiProject[edit]

The WikiProject Cognitive Science is concerned with the Wikipedia articles on subjects in the scope of cognitive science. It reflects the particular methodological and epistemological views that are central for cognitive science as opposed to other disciplines.

To that effect, of central interest to the project will be cognitive science itself, its history, and its relations and differences to other disciplines that deal with a similar subject matter.

The WikiProject's work should productively emphasize those aspects that are not taken into account by editors and WikiProjects with an intersecting scope, within as well as across articles.

As a collaborator within this project you might want to:

  • Disseminate productively the basic ideas of cognitive science and what distinguishes it from other strains of (scientific) thinking,
  • Contribute to articles and groups of articles from a specific perspective that is not reflected by other WikiProjects,
  • Complement the efforts of other WikiProjects,
  • Coordinate editing and quality control of articles and groups of articles within the project's scope,
  • Review and improve articles within the project's scope,
  • Jointly create relevant articles.

  1.  (talk · contribs)—I have founded this WikiProject to remedy the general underrepresentation of cognitive science ideas among Wikipedia's WikiProjects and articles. 00:21, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
  2. Torchiest (talk · contribs) – I mostly came into cognitive science from the linguistics angle originally, although it's all fascinating. 15:20, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
  3. Falk Lieder (talk · contribs) - Ph.D. student in computational cognitive science
  4. Snow Rise (talk · contribs) - I have particular interests in evolutionary and ecological psychology, computational, modular, and nativistic models of the mind, psycholinguistics and linguistics broadly, memory, and especially sensory perception, as well as some of the neuroscience and physiology related to these fields. Don't hesitate to contact me on my talk page for an opinion, editing that needs extra hands, or administrative matters. 23:11, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
  5. RKC_117 (talk · contribs) - B.S. in Cognitive Science with a focus on neuropsychology, autism research, and human-computer interaction. If you want to chat, feel free to message me. 14:18 14 January 2016 (UTC)
