"What is Cognition?"
For the last installment of this semester's colloquium series, the Center for Cognitive Sciences will be hosting a panel discussion around the question, "What is cognition?" Our four panelists represent a variety of disciplines in the cognitive sciences: Jeanette Gundel (linguistics), James Ashe (neuroscience/non-human primates), Melissa Koenig (development) and Wilma Koutstaal (psychology).
As part of this discussion, the panel have agreed to answer written questions. Please send your questions via email to panel moderator Dustin Meriweather (meriw007 at umn.edu) before December 4th.
