Welcome to the
Cognition & Aging Lab at
Georgia State University!
Led by Dr. Sarah Barber, research in our lab examines how human memory is affected by age and social context. Within this broad topic, we examine how stereotypes about aging impact older adults' cognitive performance, how social interactions affect the way people remember the past, and how emotion influences the memory performance of younger and older adults.
