Research Description 

The overall focus of Dr. Dunbar's research is to discover and foster the psychologically and educationally important mental processes underlying Thinking, Reasoning, Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, Conceptual change,  and Creativity, particularly in STEM fields. His recent research using fNIRS, ERP, and fMRI has been on analogical reasoning, causal reasoning, and conceptual representations of scientific concepts. The goal of his work is to harness these findings in ways that facilitate the learning of concepts in science and facilitate their transfer into the real world.
