Understanding human navigation in complex networks

Cognitive science is one of the upcoming themes in my work group. A first project in that direction was conducted together with Sudarsan Iyengar and his colleagues on human navigation in complex networks. In this cooperation we worked on analyzing how people learn to navigage in a highly abstract, word-based network.
