Donovick's lab is 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 the laboratory are working in prisons, hospitals and nursing homes, as well as on campus.
