In the CORE Lab, we try to answer questions like:


  • How do we organize what we know?
  • How do we use that organization to make guesses about what we do not know?
  • How do these processes change with development and experience?
  • What are the implications of these basic cognitive processes for real-world issues like education, social relations, and environmental literacy?
