The Cognitive & Neural Computation Lab (CNCL) works at the intersection of cognitive science, neuroscience, and artificial intelligence. We aim to elucidate biological computations underlying how we see, reason about, and interact with our physical environments. We approach this goal primarily with computational modeling, and we test these models empirically in behavioral and neural experiments to build a unified account of neural function, cognitive processes, and behavior, in precise engineering terms. Learn more about our research.

CNCL is directed by Ilker Yildirim. We are part of the Department of Psychology at Yale University where we are also affiliated with the Department of Statistics & Data Science.

We are seeking highly motivated and interested students and postdocs to join the lab. Learn more!
