We are always looking for talented, highly motivated students!  Students in this lab have opportunities to get hands-on research experiences, travel to senior centers, collect and analyze cognitive data, present their work at research conferences, and more.  Ideal students are those who are hard working, reliable, curious, able to work independently, and have strong determination to find answers to questions.  If this sounds like you, or you'd like more information on this lab, contact Dr. Matthew Shake.
