Cognitive and Comparative Psychology

The Cognitive and Comparative Psychology training area at CUNY is chiefly concerned with the study of cognitive and behavioral processes across the animal kingdom. Our basic belief is that a more complete understanding of psychological processes can often be achieved by considering such processes within an evolutionary context. In some cases, those processes will be highly specialized and in other cases they will be quite general, and we welcome analyses of the diversity of psychological processes by studying cognition and behavior at multiple levels of investigation with humans as well as with other animals.
