Cognitive science

An interdisciplinary field of study that examines the mind and its processes, including learning and development, memory retention, natural and artificial intelligence, and consciousness.

The main fields of study that inform cognitive science are: 

  • Neuroscience
  • Linguistics
  • Philosophy
  • Anthropology
  • Artificial Intelligence & computer science
  • Psychology

At Cerego, we focus on the junction of learning and memory — how we learn most effectively, and how that is tied to our longterm memory retention. Cerego uses a combination of established cognitive science principles along with AI to create a learning experience that is both effective and efficient, building stronger memory retention in fewer study hours.
