Visual Thinking Lab

We study visual thinking: how it works, and how education + design can make it work better.



About

We study how leveraging the visual system - the largest single system in your brain - can help people think, remember, and communicate more efficiently. Our basic research is inspired by real-world problems, guiding our laboratory toward the most interesting theoretical questions, while producing results that translate directly to science, education, design, and industry.
