Visual Thinking Lab

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


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 basic research questions, while producing results that translate directly to science, education, business, & design.
