The rise of cognitive science in the modern life and their applications settle this field in the daily life (serious game, neurological reeducation, motor reeducation, prosthesis, artificial intelligence, law about use of phone when driving…). It also indices myths and misunderstandings (gender differences, size of the brain, manipulation of thoughts…). It’s really important to inform on what is really cognitive science and its applictions. After the numeric generation, the new genenration needs to make its new knowledge that influence actual society as its own.

 

The project, Cogni’Junior, aims to give some basic knowledge about cognitive science via picture books to young people in a very funny and popularized way. It enable students that participate in this project to learn how to popularize their knowledge, to talk to a different public and to collaborate with artists and illustrators.
