Metacognition refers to knowledge about our own thoughts and feelings, as well as the cognitive regulation involved in directing a set of activities that will help control learning. Our lab focuses on how people use their metacognition to improve self-awareness and to guide their own learning.

The experiments conducted in the lab are computer-based cognition, memory, learning, or agency tests designed to empirically study people's abilities to make judgments of their own learning; focusing on a theoretical perspective that proposes people are capable of honing in on their own 'Region of Proximal Learning'.

If you wish to participate in one of our experiments or have any other inquiries, please send us an email.
