Moral Intuitions Lab (the MINT Lab) is a psychology research laboratory led by

Dr. Onurcan Yılmaz at Kadir Has University, Istanbul. Our group consists of senior researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, and alumni. Generally speaking, we study the intersection between morality, politics, religion, and decision making. More specifically, we use a cognitive science perspective to study the influences of intuitive and reflective decision making processes on various belief systems.


Because we currently receive so many applications, we only consider graduate students who have a basic knowledge of research methods and moral psychology.

We received the "Thinkforward" long-term research grant to promote financial preparedness under cognitive resource scarcity. Our lab will act as an external collaborator on this fantastic project.
