Cognitive Control

Cognitive Plasticity of Inhibition among Older Adults (STROOP, 3SITS):

Andrea Wilkinson’s MA thesis (STROOP) and dissertation project (3SITS) investigate the benefits of training inhibition with older adults. These projects will add to a growing body of literature suggesting that executive functions can be enhanced in old age. Furthermore, examining the transfer effects of this training to other cognitive tasks will contribute to our understanding of the relationships that exist between inhibition and other mental abilities.
