Steven Franconeri

Because almost half of our brain processes the visual world, visual depictions of information can be powerful.  They allow us to understand, manipulate, and communicate on paper, screens, and our imagination.  But visual reasoning does not always come naturally. Franconeri will describe several projects in his laboratory that connect basic research on the abilities and limitations of the visual system with new methods for teaching graph and diagram comprehension.
