Our research focuses on the developmental trajectories of cognitive processes, especially memory and cognitive control, across the lifespan. We aim at understanding the fine-grained descriptive pattern of age-related changes and stability, uncovering the mechanisms behind those trajectories, as well as developing possible intervention strategies to support the positive and alter or prevent the negative changes. Besides studying common trends we are also interested in individual differences and explore reasons why individuals differ in the way their cognitive functions develop. As core neuroscience methods we use EEG (ERPs), fMRI, heart rate and saliva cortisol.
