The shared goals of Project LENS include:

  1. Establish an effective collaborative network that will build on the strengths of each node of expertise to advance the science of learning through integrated research employing diverse research strategies, shared resources, and a focus on individual differences.
  2. Contribute to the translation and integration of conceptual frameworks, methodological approaches, and salient findings from cognitive neuroscience for the science of learning research community.
  3. Design and carry out a compelling demonstration project on visuospatial thinking in multimedia learning to illustrate the added value of an individual differences approach to study multimedia learning and the use of non-invasive neuroimaging methods.
