Cognitive science is a multidisciplinary science area that identifies the mental processes by checkout the actions of mind and intelligence through understanding the dynamics of interactions between them. In this study, based on the definition of cognitive science, the effect of cognition of the seafarers during the operational processes are evaluated under certain stressor factors such as fatigue-sleepiness, noise and thermal strain. Research was conducted on the bridge and engine room during the voyage of a short route container vessel. Test results showed that, (a) the cognitive tests performance and the reaction response times decline through fatigue and sleepiness during the watchkeeping period (b) increasing temperature and noise causes to decline the reaction time and the cognitive performance
