Research in the lab is focused on characterizing age differences and individual differences across adulthood in the motivational and cognitive processes that support decision making. Our approach combines several disciplines including psychology, behavioral economics/finance, neuroscience, and public health. We use a variety of methods including behavioral studies, experience sampling in everyday life, structural and functional MRI, and PET imaging. The goal of our translational research program is to make contributions to basic science (e.g., more precisely characterizing brain aging) and to translate our findings for improving public health and well being.
