This section describes research that has been completed or that falls outside our main applied efforts but is still important and useful.

Psychological Foundations

There are many people working on learning, assessment, and technology. The AAALab is distinctive in that it draws it primary inspiration from research on the nature of perception and action in the world. Key jargon includes induction, differentiation, gradients, affordances, embodiment, mental models, visualization, and distributed and spatial cognition. The lab publishes significant basic research on the relation between perceptual-motor systems, physical environments, and higher order cognition. Here we provide pointers to representative foundational papers.
