Abstract

Cognitive science and the arts are natural partners. The arts are produced by the mind, the brain, and the body and comprehended, interpreted, and appreciated by the mind, the brain, and the body. The arts make special contributions to cognitive science by providing a rich, natural, multi-sensory, multi-cultural arena for study and analysis. This workshop will bring together people who have been studying the connections of Cognitive Science and the arts from many different perspectives.
