Welcome to the Movement & Learning Lab!​

Our team uses behavioral, eye-tracking, and neuroimaging methods, to understand

  • How children and adults process and interpret meaning of gestures and actions

  • How gesture and action have similar and distinct impacts on how we think and learn

  • What mechanisms underlie the cognitive effects of gesture and action
