Welcome to the Adult Development & Decision Lab at UCF!

We are dedicated to understanding how people make decisions at each stage of adult development.

Current projects in the lab seek to understand how memory, attention, emotion, and reward processing to work together to support decision making across adulthood. We are also interested in how younger and older brains respond to challenges during decision processing.

Our studies are interdisciplinary — integrating principles and methodology from different fields including psychology, neuroscience, gerontology, and economics. With this approach, we hope to identify both vulnerabilities and pathways to improved decision making in human aging.
