What’s in the name

InLab has many connotations for us, encompassing several important concepts. In – stands for International Interdisciplinary Investigations into Individual Differences in Learning. Because we are InLab – this suggests that we are always in our Laboratory – whether physically or virtually – through continuous collaboration and learning.

Participants in our research are also InLab – because they contribute their time and effort to unlocking the mysteries of Learning. The disguised sigma (Σ) in our logo stands for both summation and self-energy concepts.
Our Logo also includes the 1+1>2 motto. This motto reflects our belief in the non-additive nature of collaboration. Bringing together expertise and training from different laboratories and research groups does not just combine the available resources, but produces new ideas, approaches, and directions – leading to greater knowledge.
