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 promotes 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.
Neuroimaging workstations facilitate functional MRI analysis.
