Welcome from the Director

Welcome to the Eakin Memory and Metamemory Lab Site! I am interested in human memory in general, specifically factors that impact retrieval of information. I am particularly interested in interference as an explanatory mechanism for forgetting. Much of my research has also focused on the monitoring and control of retrieval processes, or metamemory. My research uses a variety of methodologies, including fMRI, and a variety of populations, including older adults and children, and a variety of individual differences, including individuals with Asperger's Syndrome and working memory differences.
