This research study aims to investigate how willingness to engage in challenging tasks (both mental and physical) can affect different aspects of age-related cognitive functioning including memory, processing speed, learning, and decision-making strategies.
The Cognition and Decision Science Lab is searching for individuals ages 65-90 to participate in the study. All participants will first need to be screened to make sure they fit the inclusion criteria of the study. In the study itself, participants will complete a series of mentally and cognitively stimulating tasks that will take about 2.5 hours total. The results of these tasks will be utilized to examine the potential effects of effortful mental engagement on cognitive functioning. All of the participants will be compensated with $25 cash minimum for their time and effort.
