Our lab investigates which cognitive and neural systems decline and which are spared in the course of aging. We focus especially on implicit learning and memory which can occur without intent or awareness. We are working to understand why some forms of learning and memory decline while others don't, how these age differences are related to changes in the brain, and how learning and memory can be maximized at all ages. Our lab website contains recent publications and conference posters.
