Adult Development and Aging (Ph.D.)
Faculty and students within the Adult Development and Aging Doctoral Program benefit from state of the art facilities located within the Union Building (Cleveland State) and Buchtel Hall (University of Akron). Close proximity between laboratories, faculty and student offices promote collaboration in research within each university. Faculty employ a wide range of research methods and technologies, allowing students to develop an optimal approach for their particular research questions.
Several faculty employ eye tracking technology to examine information processing in real time.
Event-related EEG potentials provide a direct measurement of synaptic activity during experiments.
Psychophysiological methods (i.e., EDA and ECG) can be used to examine autonomic arousal, relevant for affective processing.
