Jane Berry's Lab

Lab Description

The Berry Lab investigates memory and other cognitive changes associated with aging, including how people think about those changes (metacognitive aging). Our research focuses on memory strengths and problems associated with aging, including monitoring new learning, the "positivity effect," and the associative deficit hypothesis. Our methods include in-person behavioral tests, online surveys, and eye-tracking. As a member in this lab, you will interact with individuals across the adult life span, including late life. Student learning outcomes in the Berry Lab include understanding cognitive gains and losses associated with aging, and building an inclusive, welcoming community of collaborators.
