Emotion and cognition interactions across the lifespan
Applied cognition, metacognition and strategy use across the lifespan (implementation intentions, imagery, future thinking)
My experimental research adresses cognitive and emotional development across the lifespan and how this is influenced by strategies and metacognitive factors. I am using behavioral and psychophysiological measures in lab-based and applied settings to examine questions like:
Are we more forgetful when we are happy or sad? Is our memory impaired under stress?
Which cognitive processes are underlying memory performance? Can memory performance in children, young and older adults be enhanced with the help of specific strategies?
Are age declines observed in some lab-based cognitive tasks related to actual everyday functioning in older adults?
