We place high value on programmatic, theory-driven research that contributes to a mechanistic understanding of cognitive processes, and are particularly interested in research that combines multiple methodologies, including neural and computational approaches. The Department of Psychology is central to the university's expanding efforts in multidisciplinary neuroscience-related research, and has particularly strong ties to the new Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute and the departments of Social and Decision Sciences, Statistics and Data Science, Human-Computer Interaction, Machine Learning, and Computer Science.
