Skill Acquisition

The main focus of our laboratory is on understanding the behavioral and neural mechanisms of skill learning. We are interested in how and what people learn, how transfer of learning occurs, and how these processes are affected by aging. 

The FMRI studies are designed to determine the brain regions that are associated with early and late components of sequence learning and sensorimotor adaptation, and how they change with age. 

The behavioral studies are designed to determine the underlying cognitive processes contributing to sequence learning and sensorimotor adaptation, and how they change with age.
