Oxford University Press

Recent years have witnessed a rapid expansion of research in the field of cognitive science. It is fuelled by conceptual advances encompassing several disciplines. This chapter discusses the different approaches to understanding cognitive processes and presents an account of research from India following these approaches. The computational view of mind is presented in detail and the efforts undertaken to identity the neural mechanisms underlying cognition are highlighted. This is followed by discussions on the approaches that have gained steam either as alternatives or complementing the main stream approaches that include embodied and situated cognition approaches to study cognition. The chapter concludes by emphasizing the need for interdisciplinarity in research and discussing the recent efforts to utilize Indian philosophical concepts to study cognition and the need to promote more applied cognitive science.

Keywords:   brain, cognition, cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, computational view of mind, EEG, environment, evolution, fMRI, Indian philosophy
