Adult Development and Aging Lab



Welcome to the Fordham Adult Development and Aging Lab! Our goal is to create a better understanding of the journey that individuals take throughout the lifespan by identifying positive and negative aspects of aging, and finding ways to positively impact the aging process. We are interested in learning more about how people develop over the course of their lives, in an effort to inform research and develop focused interventions that can aid individuals by contributing to successful aging. In particular, questions that we address include: How do health, memory, problem-solving and happiness change as we get older? How do we learn to deal with difficulties and stress? What are some of the strengths and weaknesses that arise with advancing age?
