Cognition Laboratory

In this lab, we examine the everyday operation of our mental processes that typically remain outside of conscious awareness. Specific interests include language, intelligence, expertise, attentional resources, decision-making, and perception. During the current academic year, we are examining how low-working-memory (LWM) individuals may benefit from the use of private speech while performing difficult tasks, as well as how preferences for stimuli may change based on physical movement toward or away from those stimuli.
