My current research examines the effects of cognitive aging in two domains: (1) reading/language processing, and (2) physical exercise. With regard to reading/language processing, my lab conducts research on how external factors (e.g., text structure, reading environment, etc.) and internal factors (e.g., reader goals, attentional capacity, etc.) affect older and younger adults’ ability to process and retain information that they read. With regard to physical exercise, we are conducting research on how a 10-week physical exercise program called Bingocize® can be used to improve aspects of cognitive ability and health-related knowledge in older adults. You can read more about us by visiting the Adult Learning Lab site, and if you are a current or prospective student interested in getting involved in this research, feel free to contact me via e-mail!
