The Lifespan Cognition Lab seeks to understand age-related changes in cognitive functions such as memory and attention. Current research examines working memory, a process that allows for simultaneous storage and processing of information that is used for many everyday behaviors, such as reading and driving. To test working memory, we use the repetition detection task (Bopp, 1999) which requires a participant to find a repeated digit or location in a grid. The tasks are challenging, but fun. All research is discussed with participants at the conclusion of each study.
