In the broadest sense, our research focuses on the social, emotional, and cognitive processes that people use to adapt to life circumstances as they age. We study the ways in which motivation changes developmentally and how this relates to emotional processing and emotion regulation. The laboratory's research has increased understanding of emotions, attention, and memory in older adults. Our approach utilizes diverse methodologies ranging from laboratory experiments to field studies examining aspects of emotional functioning in day-to-day life.
