Cogmentary is a multidisciplinary journal club interested in discussing state of the art cognitive science, artificial intelligence, consciousness, and philosophy of science.

Our objective is to critically read, discuss, and question scientific research. In our monthly meetings, we set out on a journey to unveil the possibilities of science by following the group’s self-constituted curriculum. We are also interested in sharing what we learn through our blog as a means to reach a wider audience.


All you have to do to be a member is join our Discord server and our Google group.
