Current Research

My students and I work with colleagues at Baycrest Centre on studies examining memory and other aspects of cognition in older adults and in neurodegenerative disease. We are currently evaluating the benefits of an online psychoeducational memory and aging intervention program. We are also interested in the impact of age-related memory changes on everyday life and how group interventions help to normalize feelings about one's memory.
