The goal of our research is to improve health and well-being in daily life for adults of all ages with a focus on older age. Our research is at the intersection of several subfields within psychology, neuroscience, gerontology, and economics. We use a combination of behavioral and neuroimaging techniques ranging from detailed measurement of functional brain activity (fMRI) and neuroreceptors (PET) in the laboratory to experience sampling in everyday life to study human decision making across adulthood
