The Brain Development and Cognition Laboratory in the Psychology Department at Penn State University studies the development of spatial perception, action planning, and memory. Our goal is to understand how rapid development in the brain relates to changes in understanding of the physical world during childhood.

Dr. Rick Gilmore heads the lab.
