Dr. Tobias Gerstenberg leads the Causality in Cognition Lab ( The CiCL studies the role of causality in our understanding of the world, and of each other. In their research, they formalize people’s mental models as computational models that yield quantitative predictions about a wide range of situations. To test these predictions, the lab uses a combination of large-scale online experiments, interactive experiments in the lab, and eye-tracking experiments.
