In the recent past research in the lab has been funded by two major research grants and a training grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA).
The first grant was a MERIT award (5 R37 AG13148), “Aging, Metacognition, and Strategy Use During Learning.” Christopher Hertzog is the Principal Investigator. John Dunlosky was the Co-investigator on this project, and conducts research at Kent State University on a subcontract from this award. The grant finished on June 30, 2010.
The second, currently active NIA grant, 1 R01 AG024485, is “Aging and Metacognition During Strategic Skill Acquisition. Christopher Hertzog is the Principal Investigator. Dayna R. Touron is the Co-investigator, and conducts research at UNC Greensboro on a subcontract from this award. This grant is funded through July 2011.
One graduate student in the lab is funded on an institutional NIA training grant, “Research Training in Cognitive Aging,” to the School of Psychology at Georgia Tech (Christopher Hertzog, Program Director). Predoctoral and postdoctoral positions are funded by the training grant.
