Lifelong Brain and Cognition Laboratory

Research on neuroplasticity and performance

The Lifelong Brain and Cognition laboratory investigates various aspects of cognition across the lifespan, with a focus on neuroplasticity. We use converging methods of neuroimaging (magnetic resonance imaging, electroencephalography), eye-tracking, and neuropsychological assessment to study the nature of executive control, memory, and visual attention processes. We examine how these neurocognitive functions develop with age, and how they change with physical, cognitive, and nutritional interventions.

Want to participate in our research?

If you are interested in gaining research experience and earning psychology or MCB course credit, we offer courses in which you will receive credit hours for your work in our lab. We also are currently looking for participants for our studies from a variety of populations.
