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.

The Collaboration Cluster program provides resources for groups to explore focused topical areas in neuroscience. These groups encourage Pitt and CMU faculty and trainees to exchange ideas, strengthen existing ties and build new collaborations. https://t.co/JMoniDGPS8— Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute (@cmuneurosci) February 19, 2020
Aryn Gittis in a faculty member in the Biological Sciences department and Neuroscience Institute at CMU. Her research on the basal ganglia may lead to improved improved treatments for patients with Parkinson's disease. https://t.co/Di5H5ttDfx— Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute (@cmuneurosci) February 6, 2020
Congratulations to our director, Barb Shinn-Cunningham, who was just elected as Secretary and Treasurer to the Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO). ARO is the world’s largest organization of hearing and balance researchers.https://t.co/xUVYjZGyoO— Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute (@cmuneurosci) January 27, 2020
