Neuropsychology Laboratory of Aging and Dementia
Overview of Our Research
Our laboratory (Director: Nancy Foldi, PhD) is interested in the effects of aging on brain-behavior relationships, with special interest in late-life changes of the attentional mechanisms. Attentional processes such as selective attention, divided attention, covert orienting, and the attentional blink all serve to manage and direct allocation of our limited attentional resources. Late life and particularly dementing diseases place these tasks at risk, which can further disrupt downstream cognitive abilities of memory and language.
