Brain activity patterns reveal four stages of thinking that can be used to improve how students learn.
The idea for the physician-finding app "Meddy," came from a snippet of a conversation Haris Aghadi overheard at a family gathering: "Could you recommend a good doctor?"
CMU's John Miller says there are lessons to be learned by understanding how bees in a hive, and a variety of other systems, interact.
Nico Slate, an associate professor of history, never imagined his historical research would inspire dance performances.
Under growing pressure to report accurate findings, a team of statisticians, including CMU's Robert E. Kass, wrote guidelines to help the research community.
Menu labels reduced the calories ordered by 10 percent in a first-of-its-kind experiment.
The storied, elegant and luring Oakmont Country Club, the site of this year's U.S. Open, is one of golf's greatest treasures. No one knows that better than Carnegie Mellon University History Professor Steve Schlossman.
Researchers have developed approaches that focus on the information patients need most.

The projects are designed to improve education for CMU students while advancing our understanding of how humans learn.
The event is one of the first hackathons to engage computer scientists in using one of the hardest systems to crack: the structure of neural data and the brain.
"We are 'informavores' as much as we are omnivores," CMU's George Loewenstein says.
The acclaimed statistician has earned the highest honor a scientist can receive for his distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.
More than 600 undergraduate students will present research at "Meeting of the Minds," Carnegie Mellon University's annual symposium from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday, May 4 in the Cohon University Center.
