Rick Gilmore’s Lab @ Penn State


The Gilmore Lab in the Psychology Department at Penn State studies the development of perception, action, and memory. Our goal is to understand patterns of brain and behavioral change in infants, children, and young adults. We use behavioral, EEG, and MRI methods in our research.

Active Projects

We have several active projects related to visual perception and open science that are described here. You can also get a taste of what we do by visiting the Databrary digital data library, specifically the page devoted to our research.

During the Spring 2017 semester, we are focusing on improving our collective data science chops thanks to the support of online training offered by DataCamp. Thanks, DataCamp!
