New grant with collaborators from UC Irvine!

October 1, 2020

The Spatial Thinking Lab, along with collaborators from UC Irvine Liz Chrastil, Jeff Krichmar, and Craig Stark were awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation, “Advantages of varying navigational abilities in humans and robots.”
The award will take a full-scale examination of individual differences in navigational ability, from both brain and behavior, and then connecting that to make robots with similar variation.
