Our main research goals involve testing developmental effects in a wide variety of memory paradigms, such as recall and recognition, associative memory and emotional memory. We are also interested in the effects of cognitive control, executive functions, and growth in knowledge base on memory development.

Our studies use extensive behavioral assessments, neuroimaging protocols looking at the structure and the function of the brain, genetic information and longitudinal designs to allow multidimensional characterization of memory development.

We are part of Lifespan Cognitive Neuroscience Research Program and are affiliated with the Institute of Gerontology, the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute of Child and Family Development, and the Department of Pediatrics in the School of Medicine.
