About Our Lab: 

In the Spatial Thinking lab at the University of California, Santa Barbara, we are interested in spatial thinking very generally, from how people mentally represent the locations of objects in space and the location of the self in the environment to how people use spatial representations to think about non-spatial entities. We use a variety of methods in our research, including analysis of individual differences, eye tracking, fMRI, and use of virtual environment technology as well as more traditional experimental methods in cognitive psychology. Prospective students, please note: Dr. Hegarty is *not* recruiting new graduate students for the 2024-2025 school year.
