Welcome to the Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning Labdirected by Prof. Hamilton Haddad.
               We are located at the Institute of BiosciencesUniversity of São Paulo, Brazil.


Our main line of research has focused on the interaction between neuroscience and education. In an embodied cognition framework, we are searching for certain psychophysiological measures in the teaching-learning process, such as eye movements, electrodermal responses, and gestures.

‪‪We are also investigating the process of conceptual change in Biology, with emphasis on the use of teleological explanations among students.

Others items of interest include time perception, visual attention, the history of physiology, and the philosophy of mind, mainly exploring the relations between embodied approaches to human cognition and situated learning theories.
