Lab Director: Patricia A. Reuter-Lorenz, Ph.D. Program Area: Cognition & Cognitive Neuroscience

The Cognitive and Affective Neuropsychology Laboratory is dedicated to investigating the neural mechanisms underlying cognition and affect. Using a variety of approaches, our goal is to develop new models of how the brain gives rise to mental life across the lifespan. Our projects focus on cognitive and affective working memory processes, the influence of value and emotion on cognitive processes, and how these abilities change due to aging.
