About the book:
This book provides an overview of cognitive science and critically assesses areas within the topic that are evolving rapidly. Using multidisciplinary studies and rich empirical literature, discussions, and demonstrations, the book also:
• Discusses the evolution of cognition with reference to material records and the use of brain imaging
• Highlights emerging domains and novel themes within cognitive science such as transgender cognition, space cognition, cross-cultural cognition, futuristic artificial intelligence, social cognition and moral cognition
• Reflects on the status of cognition research in these emerging areas and critically evaluates their current progress
• Explores data both from behavioural and neuroimaging research literature, and sheds light on the potential effects of technological growth and changing habits on attention and cognitive abilities of humans
• Examines the effects of religious and meditative practices on its core cognitive science components
• Speculates research domains that would gain importance in the next few decades in cognitive science research
