John Rieser

Professor of Psychology and Human Development
Investigator, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on 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.
