Welcome to the Website of the Cognitive Aging Lab at the Department of Psychology, University of Geneva!

Our teaching and research focuses on the developmental trajectories of cognitive processes such as memory and executive functions 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.
