Welcome to the Spatial Cognition and Navigation Lab!

Spatial navigation ability is a fundamental building block of our daily living and survival. Any given day of an independent person involves numerous episodes of navigation, small or large—from bedroom to kitchen, from home to work, etc. Nevertheless, our current knowledge about how we find our way in an environment and how the brain mediates this process is still limited. How do we acquire memories for environmental layouts? How do we keep track of where we are in the environment as we move around? Research in the Spatial Cognition and Navigation Lab addresses these questions to advance our understanding of cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying human spatial navigation.

Spatial Cognition and Navigation Lab is affiliated with the Department of Psychology, Cleveland State University (CSU).
