Cognitive Science Researchers

This is a draft of a list of Waterloo faculty in cognitive science, the interdisciplinary study of mind and intelligence. This list includes people who work in one of the fields of cognitive science (psychology, neuroscience, computational intelligence, anthropology, linguistics, philosophy) and have interests in one or more of the other fields. If you would like to be deleted from this list, please email Paul Thagard. Also welcome are suggestions about additional people to add, and revisions to the descriptions of research interests and methods.
