What is cognition? Enquiry about the architecture of the mind has been approached from different perspectives in neuroscience, psychology, cognitive science, and philosophy. Cognition involves a plethora of complex processes such as learning, inference-making, and anticipation. Comparative studies of animal behavior and child development may allow for a more integrated approach to understand cognition as a unified developmental and collective strategy.
