Everyday cognition, individual differences, working memory, aging, intervention.
Dr. Richmond’s research broadly examines everyday cognition and individual differences in the ability to successfully navigate the cognitive challenges encountered in everyday life. Dr. Richmond looks at both individual differences within samples of healthy younger adults as well as how the ability to solve everyday challenges might change with age One major goal of this work is to develop interventions and/or identify cognitive strategies that could help people better remember events from their everyday lives and perform everyday activities. This is a particularly salient issue in aging populations, as older adults who exhibit difficulties in carrying out activities of daily living often require some level of caregiving, either by a family member or by moving to an assisted living center. Many older adults would prefer to continue living independently as long as they are able, so interventions and/or strategies that improve their ability to carry out everyday activities of daily living may serve to prolong independence in old age .
