Science Night Live: Is There a Human GPS system?

How is it that some people always know how to get from one place to another, and others always get lost? What do we know about how humans navigate, and can we predict their actions before they even start? This talk explores navigation research using everything from video games to real-world forests -- and confirms the belief that there are good navigators and people who are perpetually lost.

Speaker: Elisabeth J. Ploran, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Hofstra University 

Science Night Live is Hofstra University’s public lecture series that features exciting science research presented by some of the top scientists and lecturers in their fields. Science is more important in our everyday lives, and these timely lectures are sure to inspire and challenge us in unexpected ways.
