Introductory/Interesting Cognitive Science Reading


Informal Discussions and Mentoring

Several students requested a mentoring system or some other forum for discussion outside of the colloquium. I thought we could try using the swiki as support. Please add questions or dicussion topics at the following page and feel free to send a related email to any of the students listed at the bottom:
