The following resources are maintained by the Center for Cognitive Science:

Cognitive Science Library

The Cognitive Science library, located in a portion of the conference room, contains a sizable and increasing collection of materials pertaining to cognitive science.

This collection includes a substantial number of books, core journals relevant to the field, cognitive science-related publications of the Center faculty members, the cognitive science technical report series of both UB and other institutions, materials on other cognitive science programs around the country, and tapes of virtually all Center-sponsored talks.

Informational Clearing-House

Every week, the Center distributes (electronically and by hardcopy) lists of upcoming cognitive science-related events. A number of CogSci-affiliated departments announce their presentations and workshops in this listing, which has become the campus's main centralized source for such information. In addition, the Center regularly distributes information via email on cognitive science-related conferences, job announcements, grant possibilities, and more.

Join our list-serves:

  • Cogsci-all: Non-UB-affiliates with an interest in local CogSci news and activities.
  • Cogsci-local: UB faculty and staff with an interest in local CogSci news and activities. 
  • Cogsci-students: UB CogSci graduate and undergraduate students with an interest in specific student-oriented news and activities, as well as general information.
  • SNeRG: Open to any with an interest in the SNePS Research Group

Members of the CogSci-local and CogSci-students list-serves automatically receive listings from the CogSci-all list-serve.

Collation of Cognitive Science-Related Courses

In advance of the start of each semester, the Center distributes a collation of all the cognitive science-related courses that will be offered in that upcoming semester. This list helps students interested in cognitive science to select their courses. In the collation process, the Center also alerts different departments of any conflicts in their course scheduling.

Technical Reports Series

The Center publishes a series of research and technical reports that presents recent work by Center faculty members and some selected student papers or dissertations pertaining to cognitive science.

An updated series listing is periodically distributed for those wishing to purchase research reports of interest to them, and the Center maintains an arrangement with several other cognitive science facilities for a mutual exchange of technical report series.

Cognitive Science Graduate Student Association

The Cognitive Science Graduate Student Association (CSGSA) provides an opportunity for graduate students interested in Cognitive Science to interact with each other. All Graduate Student Members of the Center for Cognitive Science are automatically members of the Graduate Student Association for Cognitive Science. Other interested graduate students may join.
