Cognitive Science Experiments in the Cube

ISL contact: Jim Crowell

The Cube is an active research facility; affiliated members of the UIUC Psychology Department began collecting data in six experiments between 8/03 and 12/03. These experiments are subsumed under the three lines of research listed below.

Current Research Lines:

The Nature of Object Memory
Spatial Memory Across Changes in Viewpoint
Learning Object Categories
Accurate Measurement of Response Time in the CUBE

We are also working to implement experiments in two additional research lines:

Forthcoming Research Lines

Spatial Updating in Complex Environments
Navigation by Dead Reckoning
