The LACE Lab adheres to the scientist-practitioner model. Research in this lab contributes to basic theories of learning and behavior while acknowledging the importance of applying this knowledge to your daily life. We are specifically interested in how learning changes across the lifespan, how we may best promote learning in all age groups, and how older adults may improve cognitive function and daily health practices.

Other human factors interests include HCI design for special populations and the study of motivated complex behaviors, such as challenging hobbies and the maintenance of skill into older age.

The lab functions as part of the Human Factors and Applied Cognition Program at NC State.
