General Meeting – April 22, 2021

 

Our featured speaker in April 2021 is Dr. Caitlin Mahy from the Psychology Department at Brock University.

“Caitlin Mahy is a developmental psychologist who studies memory across the lifespan. She received her PhD from the University of Oregon in 2012 and started her position at Brock in 2014. She is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and directs the Developing Memory and Cognition Laboratory at Brock University. Much of Dr. Mahy’s research focuses on how we remember to carry out our future intentions, an ability known as prospective memory. Prospective memory is a critical ability in maintaining independence in our daily lives. In her talk, Dr. Mahy will describe recent research on prospective memory across the lifespan with a focus on how it changes with age. She will also provide some tips on how individuals can support their memory abilities that are supported by research findings and highlight some findings that suggest motivation can play a role in maintaining prospective memory during aging.”
