Brief Research Statement

Remembering to perform tasks that are planned for the future on time is an essential ability in daily life that can be associated with both gains and losses. For example, recalling to take certain medications on time can drastically benefit one’s health, whereas not remembering to turn off the stove can be quite detrimental. In psychology this ability to remember future events is termed prospective memory. In my research I'm interested in how the motivational properties of gains and losses affect prospective memory and how this changes across adulthood. This research is funded by the SNF and is supervised by Dr. Sebastian Horn.
