Research in the Memory & Aging Lab examines mechanisms that give rise to memory distortion and investigates how those mechanisms might also lead to memory enhancement. In particular, research is focused along the following three lines: the impact of source confusion on memory distortion, the impact of social factors on improving memory, and the role of individual differences in predicting memory performance within and between populations. To study these questions, we test young and older adults using behavioral research methods along with subjective judgments and neuropsychological assessment.
