Many CDS faculty and students are members and participants of the Center for Cognitive Science, another center of excellence at the University at Buffalo.
The Center for Cognitive Science promotes the development of research networks and of new research activities in cognitive science, both locally and across institutions via colloquia, discussion groups, workshops, and conferences that bring together both members of the campus and invited visitors working on cutting-edge issues in cognitive science. The Center also conducts both an undergraduate major leading to a B.A. in Cognitive Science and a program of graduate tracks in cognitive science. The Center sponsors a Graduate Student Association for Cognitive Science, composed of students from different departments who meet to discuss current cross-disciplinary issues.
