About the Lab

The Cognitive Aging lab (Michael Marsiske, PhD, Director) is based in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology, in the College of Public Health and Health Professions, at the University of Florida. Research foci of our lab include:

  • The investigation of training and intervention programs to boost late-life mental performance
  • The development of assessment instruments to measure older adults’ competence with tasks of daily living, and
  • Methodological and statistical approaches for understanding long term changes in thinking and memory in later adulthood.
  • Identifying risks and protective factors associated with mild cognitive impairment and dementia
  • Exploring social determinants of health as mediators of racial and ethnic disparities in late life cognition
