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.

Please welcome our newest faculty member, Doug Weber! Weber plans to collaborate to build machines that can move like humans and also sense and reason, enabling them to work safely and effectively alongside humans or independently. @CMU_Mech @dougweberlab https://t.co/M1LHRfpHRA— Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute (@cmuneurosci) November 10, 2020
The Neuroscience institute will be present at the CMU exhibitor booth at #ABRCMS! To chat with us about our grad programs: set up a 1-on-1 through the web or phone application for the CMU booth or join us over Zoom during exhibitor hours 5:45pm-7:30pm today through Thursday. pic.twitter.com/prj0BXLxug— Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute (@cmuneurosci) November 9, 2020
