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