A montage of several researchers who represent not only comparative psychology (Drs. Robert Cook and Herbert Roitblat), but also developmental cognitive neuropsychology (Dr. Adele Diamond) and human factors (Dr. D.A. (Fred) Owens), reinforces the opening statement.

The researchers are interested in understanding basic principles, processes, and mechanisms of perception and action as well as ways in which the research findings have applications to real-life problems. There are examples of how some of these applications were unanticipated when the research, driven by questions of basic research interest, was first started.
