Dr. Geoffrey Maddox is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of the Memory and Cognition Lab. His research examines (a) the relationship between episodic memory and other cognitive mechanisms such as attentional control, (b) differences in episodic memory between young and healthy older adults, and (c) how long term memory can be improved in both of these groups.
