Moral Psychology Research Lab

Group Picture


Welcome to the Moral Psychology Research Lab. Our research asks questions like: Why do we sometimes punish accidents? And, when do we think it is OK to sacrifice one person for the good of many? We are interested in understanding the cognitive processes that give rise to moral judgment, their development, and their evolutionary history.

The lab is housed in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, and is directed by Fiery Cushman.
