Cognitive Sciences in Information Architecture

Cognitive science is an ambiguous subject. It is the amalgamation of different fields that span a large variety of disciplines, e.g. psychology, AI, neuroscience, philosophy, human-computer interaction. At its core, it is essentially the study of the human mind. Each field explores the mysteries of the human mind from their own perspective. This paper presents a look at some theories of research that have a strong corollary to information architecture. The ties between the theories and their applications in information architecture may be subjective, but there is no denying that some phenomena of the brain are an integral part of our everyday lives.
