About Patricia M. Simone

My primary focus of research is cognitive aging. I study factors that influence long term memory in older adults and children. Environmental factors include continuing education, spaced retrieval and other moderators of change. I am also interested in the development of selective attention abilities of children, young adults, and older adults, including the role of distractor processing in selective attention, and behavioral and neural mechanisms of cognitive inhibition.
