Understanding Neural Efficiencies Similarities in Students solving Spatial Ability and Statics Problems


PI: Wade Goodridge, PhD
Co-PI: Idalis Villanueva, PhD



Overview: 

Spatial Ability is a prime area of investigation regarding the similarities and differences in neural efficiencies of students engaged in problem-solving. There are also distinct avenues to question regarding how these neural patterns relate to problem-solving in other areas such as engineering coursework. This research looks to establish a methodology for such an investigation as well as begin to understand the similarities and differences in neural efficiencies of those in the engineering curriculum.
