Carnegie Mellon is an outstanding intellectual environment for cognitive
and cognitive neuroscience research. The nearby University of Pittsburgh
adds to the diversity of the academic environment, as does the Center
for the Neural Basis of Cognition (www.cnbc.cmu.edu) a joint research
center between CMU and Pitt.

Carnegie Mellon is located in Pittsburgh, PA. The living environment in
Pittsburgh is outstanding. Residents can take advantage of urban
amenities and the surrounding countryside. Nestled in hills and rivers,
Pittsburgh is a geographically attractive city with a low population
density. It has evolved from the industrial base of the early 20th
century to today's technologically and educationally based economy. The
air is clean, the schools are good, and there is an active and varied
cultural life. Pittsburgh has its own ballet, opera, symphony,
performing artists and lecture series, theater companies, public
television station, art museum, music and arts festivals, etc. For
sports fans there are the Pirates, the Steelers, and the Penguins.
Runners can jog on forest trails in nearby parks; bicycle fans have a
nearby web of trails that run along old rail beds from West of the City
to Washington, D.C. For more information, see
