Research Interests

Dr. Loken Thornton's research examines age differences in cognitive performance using both traditional neuropsychological measures and measures of “everyday” cognition and functioning. She is interested in how age differences in memory and other cognitive abilities are explained by individual differences in factors such as lifestyle and health. She is also interested in understanding how older and younger adults differ in their approach to making decisions, particularly regarding their health care.
