The lab's research focuses mainly on the related topics of problem solving, insight, creativity, and cognitive style. Overviews of this work can be found in a recent review article and in the new book The Eureka Factor: Aha Moments, Creative Insight, and the Brain (coauthored with Mark Beeman).  

The lab also maintains projects on Alzheimer's disease with Dr. David Wolk of the University of Pennsylvania, brain stimulation with Dr. Roy Hamilton of the University of Pennsylvania, the neural basis of eating disorders with Dr. Michael Lowe of Drexel University, and neuromarketing with Dr. Suri Rajneesh.
