Research Interests:

We are utilizing neuropsychological techniques to better understand cognitive/behavioral factors in (1) aging and dementia, (2) incarcerated persons, (3) the neuropsychology of compassion, (4) neuropsychocological aspects of health and illness, and (5) the neurocognitive consequences of bilingualism. Thus students in our laboratory are working in prisons, hospitals and nursing homes, as well as on campus.
