Cognitive Aging Lab

Welcome to the NDSU Cognitive Aging Lab.

The Cognitive Aging Lab, directed by Dr. Linda Langley, is located in the Department of Psychology at North Dakota State University and is affiliated with the Center for Visual and Cognitive Neuroscience.

The lab is dedicated to the study of cognitive functioning in later life. We focus on age-related changes in attention and visual search. Current questions of interest are: How do age-related changes in the brain influence older adults' attention? What types of cognitive training programs benefit older adults? How does attention impact everyday abilities such as driving? How does meaningfulness impact how young and older adults attend to information?
