The Hertzog Adult Cognition Laboratory is recruiting talented undergraduate research assistants (Psych 2699 & 4699) who want to gain hands-on research experience for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019.
The Adult Cognition Lab will be running experiments investigating learning, reasoning and memory. Studies include:
1. A behavioral intervention focused on everyday memory and cognition with retirement-age older adults.
2. How aging affects memory and whether it also affects older adults’ learning strategies and monitoring of memory performance.
3. Assessing older and younger adults’ reported experiences with everyday memory failures, their common memory complaints, and the strategies they use to compensate for age-related changes in memory through qualitative analyses.
Interested students should meet the following criteria: Have an interest in psychology, be independently motivated, be personable and enjoy interacting with people – including older adults, be friendly, be timely, and pay attention to detail. Special preference will be given to psychology majors. No previous research experience is necessary. Contact Emily Lustig (firstname.lastname@example.org) with inquiries and questions.
