The goal of Dr. Gorman’s research is to understand how coordinating activities with others helps shape peoples’ thoughts, actions, and performance capabilities.  His research focuses on team dynamics that occur in many settings—medicine, sports, military—that are fundamental to accomplishing a variety of human tasks.  Research in Dr. Gorman’s Systems Psychology Lab seeks to understand and enhance human performance in human systems such as teams using a variety of methodologies, including communication analysis, movement data, gaze tracking, and neural approaches.

Our current research projects include:

  • How interpersonal motor coordination processes structure the range of movement patterns people can perform
  • How communication behavior and neurophysiology change concurrently as teams interact
  • How the design of team task environments shape human interaction and individual performance
