The Embodied Learning Design and Educational Neuroscience (ELDEN) Lab (https://elden.ua.edu) was founded in 2015. As the name implies, our work is within the newly emerging field of educational neuroscience. The current research in the ELDEN Lab mainly focuses on numerical cognition, mathematics learning, and embodied cognition, in addition to wider interests in cognitive and developmental disorders, evolution of cognition, STEM learning, and computational modeling. We conduct behavioral, neuroimaging, electrophysiology, and design-based investigations for our research. Our approach to learning and cognition is framed by embodied and evolutionary theories of cognition, with a particular emphasis on how bodily systems ground cognition and how cognitive abilities have evolved through reuse of existing sensorimotor systems.
