Welcome to the Thinking Lab at Yale University!

The Thinking Lab is directed by Woo-kyoung Ahn, Professor of Psychology, Yale University. We are interested in any topics related to thinking, including causal learning and reasoning, and concepts and categorization. We study not only basic issues, but also applied issues, such as how different kinds of causal explanations for mental disorders affect how people think about mental disorders. Please visit our Research page to learn more about recent projects.
