Cognitive Animal Research Center

Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior. At the Animal Cognitive Research Center we focus on studying nonhuman animals to better understand the evolutionary origins of behavior and cognition, including how and why humans evolved the way they did. Because nonhuman primates are the closest living relatives to humans, our research primarily focuses on species within this lineage.
