A cross-disciplinary laboratory for research on learning and motivation.
Synapse Lab develops and investigates interventions for promoting motivation and learning in education and work life.
Our researchers are motivated by the need for evidence based policy making and organizational change. We work in close collaboration with educators, businesses and organizations.
We utilize rigorous experimental methodology combined with registry data, and connect researchers from different disciplines. As a result, we create mutually beneficial collaborations between researchers and educators, businesses and organizations.
