Research in the CALIBER lab is aimed at understanding individual differences in cognitive abilities. People differ in their cognitive abilities and these differences matter in life, in terms of academic achievement, job performance, income, health, and happiness. The Lab’s research is concerned with how cognitive abilities are measured and what role they play in various real-world cognitive tasks such as learning new information, reading and listening comprehension, and decision making.

BETA – Biological and Experience-based Trajectories in Adolescent brain and cognitive development

The BETA team is trying to find out what is behind adolescent development and what are the exact mechanism turning a child’s brain into an adult one. Due to the novel technique we have been using, this project is not only exciting, but it will provide answers to the many open questions related to this developmental period. Our technique involves an exact measurement of biological age that we can sufficiently pit against  chronological age.
