COGS fosters interaction and collaboration among all those working in cognitive science at Sussex, including researchers and students in artificial intelligence, psychology, linguistics, neuroscience and philosophy. It is a pioneering, internationally recognised centre for interdisciplinary investigation into the nature of cognition, be it natural or artificial.

To find out what is happening in COGS at the moment, take a look at the following pages.

Members of COGS are involved in running the Cognitive Science Interdisciplinary Programme (COGS IDP), a key component of several undergraduate degrees at Sussex. For further information, see our teaching and admissions pages.

Members of COGS also run the vibrant cognitive science research groups listed on our research pages. COGS itself fosters and encourages interdisciplinary interaction between all these groups, and supports and enables the creation of new cognitive science research groups at Sussex, especially those which cut across the departmental groups, departments, and schools at the University. For futher information, contact Dr Ron Chrisley.

For information on other teaching and research that used to be conducted by the School of Cognitive and Computing Sciences, please consult the following pages:
