Cognitive Science, in very general terms, is the study of the brain and intelligence, with applications in an array of disciplines ranging from psychology, linguistics, neurology, anthropology, philosophy... even computer science and artificial intelligence. It is concerned with intelligent systems, biological or artificial. A cognitive scientist studies perception, problem solving, decision-making, language, memory, and emotion. A neuroscientist studies the brain function that shapes cognition and all other behavior. Their specialties can range from molecular and cellular neuroplasticity in organic subjects to artificial neural networks and robotics.
