My research has two broad themes. The first concerns
individual differences in memory and attention, both as a function of
normal aging and working memory capacity. How and why are certain
individuals better at attending to and remembering information in their
everyday lives? What are the best ways to measure these differences in
The second focuses on more applied issues having to do with memory
rehabilitation. What cognitive training techniques are most
at slowing or reversing age-related declines? What role does physical
fitness play in memory improvement?
