The Problem Solving and Learning lab is led by Dr. Jarrod Moss and is located in Magruder Hall at Mississippi State University.
Research in our lab focuses on two main areas. The first line of research seeks to understand how people solve complex problems especially when the problem requires the generation of novel or creative solutions. The second line of research in the lab involves examining the neural correlates of employing effective learning and training strategies. For both of these lines of research, we use neuroimaging tools to understand how these cognitive processes work.

Dr. Moss is looking to recruit new graduate students for the 2017-2018 academic year. All of the students in the lab are funded, and we have new/ongoing grants that need graduate student researchers. Email Dr. Moss and apply to our Cognitive Science doctoral program by January 15, 2017.
