The Aging and Cognition Unit

The Aging and Cognition Unit (formerly the Amnesia and Cognition Unit) is a neuropsychology research laboratory in the Department of Psychology at the University of Arizona, dedicated to studying memory and memory disorders. Their main focus is on understanding the cognitive and neural bases of different kinds of memory and how they are affected by normal and pathological aging or by brain damage. They are particularly interested in how medial temporal and prefrontal brain regions interact to produce a variety of memory behaviors. They are also interested in the rehabilitation of memory disorders and in devising methods to enhance memory abilities in older adults and in individuals with neurological damage.
