Group leader: Anik De Ribaupierre

Group name: Developmental and differential psychology

Affiliation: Psychology

Research activities:

Cognitive development across the lifespan: Our main theme of research concerns the study of the working memory capacity across the lifespan (children, young adults and older adults), together with associated processes such as processing speed, inhibition, and executive functions. The focus is placed on developmental and interindividual differences, as well as on intra-individual variability (both within and across situations). A second theme of research is visuo-spatial working memory from a cognitive, differential and developmental perspective. A third theme of research is changes with age in neurofunctional networks underlying cognitive and executive functions
