Welcome to The University of Montana Political Cognition Lab's OFFICIAL web page. We are dedicated to producing the best political psychology research possible. Our lab's work has been featured in major national and international news outlets (e.g., NPR, USA Today, Washington Post, BBC Radio, Search Magazine; for more links and information, click on "news" above and scroll down).
In the Political Cognition lab, we study what shapes people's thoughts and beliefs, and the subsequent consequences those thoughts and beliefs have. As the name implies, we are particularly interested in thoughts and beliefs that have political implications.
At a practical level, our lab is divided into two (often overlapping) lab groups: The Consensus Lab and the Cognitive Complexity lab. The Consensus lab focuses on the often-shared nature of beliefs. The Cognitive Complexity lab focuses on whether beliefs have a simple or complex structure. Please navigate to the specific lab pages for more information on each lab. Within these pages, you will find information on research projects and lab members, publications, tools for lab members, links to relevant cites, and more.
