Brain and Navigation Laboratory




Why do some people never get lost, while others get disoriented easily?  To find out, we study aspects of navigation that people accomplish successfully and investigate how these abilities break down. 

The Brain and Navigation Laboratory is located at The George Washington University in Washington, DC. and is ideally situated to take advantage of the diverse and thriving environment of the nation's capital. 

We collaborate extensively with physicians and researchers in the GWU Medical Center, the Department of Computer Science, and the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
