About Us

The Spatial Memory and Cognition laboratory is part of the UNL's psychology department and the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior.

In the Spatial Memory and Cognition Lab we study the development of spatial cognition and executive function from toddlers to adults with a primary focus on spatial memory and attention in early childhood. We take a dynamic systems approach to development, and we are particularly interested in how different aspects of the system (e.g., body, brain, and environment) interact over development. See the Current Research Projects page for more information about ongoing research in the lab.
