APA Division 20 Postdoctoral Research Award received for collaborative project

Congratulations to AD&D Lab collaborator, Dr. Didem Pehlivanoglu (UF), for receiving the APA Division 20 Postdoctoral Research Award. Her first-authored presentation entitled, “Aging in an “infodemic”: The role of cognition, affect, and experience on news veracity detection during the COVID-19 pandemic”, features findings from a collaborative project between the UF Social-Cognitive and Affective Development Lab and the AD&D Lab. Results highlight mechanisms underlying news veracity detection across adulthood and suggest avenues for interventions to enhance news communication and reduce misinformation among older adults.
