SPACE Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

Spatial Perception, Action, Cognition, & Embodiment

Welcome to the SPACE Lab at the University of Wisconsin - Madison!

In the SPACE Lab, we study cognitive development, with a specific emphasis how young children learn about and use visuo-spatial information.

We ask research questions such as:

How do children learn to keep track of objects that are out of sight?

What features help children recognize animals and objects?

How do developing language skills support memory for visual information?

What role does attention play in limitations in children's memory?
