Professor of Psychology, Department of Psychology and Human Development
Professor Rieser's research is focused on development and how perception, representation (imagination), and action come to act in concert as a coordinated system. Through mainly experimental studies with toddlers, children, adults and visually impaired adults, he is probing the functional organization of the system and the system's limits.
