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).
