Biology and cognitive science are natural partners. Biology, the study of the natural world, includes a wide variety of topics. Only some of those topics are relevant to cognitive science, however. Botany, for example, has little to do with cognitive science other than how plant materials affect thinking and behavior. Neuroscience is the main such topic given that the brain is a kind of biological computer. In addition, the very tasks of living demand that organisms monitor and adapt to an ever changing environment.
