Welcome to Cognition and Natural Behaviour Laboratory

Our research focuses on three broad areas (1) trying to better understand how we use our body and the social and material environment (e.g., technology) to help us think, and how this coupling ultimately shapes our thinking (2) using research in cognitive science to improve educational practices, particularly in the design of video lectures and (3) trying to understand how we perceive and make judgments based on effort. This involves research that spans a number of traditional domains including attention, memory, cognitive control, perception, and language.
