What is Cognitive Science? - Der Film zum "Handbuch Kognitionswissenschaft"

In dem durch ein Studienprojekt entstandenen Film "What is Cognitive Science?" wird in 80 Minuten erklärt, was die Studenten und Studentinnen an ihrem Studiengang interessant finden.
Der Film ist sowohl sehenswert für echte CogScis als auch besonders für interessierte Laien und natürlich für diejenigen, die bisher keine zufriedenstellende Antwort auf die Frage erhalten haben: "Kognitionswissenschaft? Was ist das eigentlich?".
