The Aging and Cognitive Training (ACT) Labratory
Our research focuses on how individuals exert control over their mental
processes and actions. We are interested in why certain individuals -
particularly older adults and individuals with low working memory
capacity - suffer deficits in cognitive control. The ACT lab has two
interrelated goals, the development of better methods for defining and
measuring cognitive control and the creation of training techniques to
improve functioning in affected populations.
Directions to the lab:
The ACT lab is located in Room 3100 of the new Teaching Labs (TL) building. The
TL building is on Walton Drive between the Nursing Building and the Student Recreation
Center. Off-campus research participants may use the "Research Participant" parking
spots located right in front of the TL building (a special permit is needed which
you can get from your experimenter).
