Neuro Week: Celebrating Innovations in Brain Research@CMU
November 4-8, 2019
A leader of transformative advances in neural sciences
As the birthplace of artificial intelligence and cognitive psychology, CMU brain scientists have had real-world impact for over 50 years.
From the creation of some of the first cognitive tutors, to the development of the Jeopardy-winning Watson, to founding a ground-breaking doctoral program in neural computation, to recent cutting-edge work on the genetic basis of autism, Carnegie Mellon has been, and will continue to be, a leader in the study of brain and behavior.
And our expertise doesn't stop at technology. World-renowned faculty such as Allen Newell, Herbert Simon, John Anderson and Raj Reddy all helped shape modern cognitive psychology.
At the same time, seminal collaborations between psychologists and computer scientists gave rise to the field of artificial intelligence.
Today, partnerships between CMU neuroscientists, psychologists, statisticians, computer scientists and engineers leave us poised to make similar groundbreaking accomplishments.

Holt and @ShinnCunningham discuss their work to understand language learning and the “cocktail party problem.” They both reveal unexpected paths to the field of psychology and a diverse set of interests, from travel to competitive saber fencing. https://t.co/JaOuiwMFJQ— Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute (@cmuneurosci) September 13, 2019
Congratulations to Rahul Panat and Eric Yttri, who received a grant from the National Institutes of Health to create a new and much-improved method for collecting neurological data. https://t.co/b9dcOIj39B— Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute (@cmuneurosci) August 31, 2019
