Adult Development and Aging (Life Lab)

Research group

Short description

We study how people develop during their entire life, with a focus on identifying the principles that describe how people develop during younger and older adulthood. It is important to study conditions during the entire life, also in childhood and younger adulthood, to understand how people develop in aging. We investigate in particular the genetic mechanisms, behavioral patterns, and sociocultural factors that affect how mental health and cognitive ability (e.g., memory and decision-making) changes through life.
