Research Goals

Research at the Aging and Neurocognition Lab (AANCL) has two overarching goals:

  1. To understand how age and age-related conditions (e.g., mild cognitive impairment (MCI); Alzheimer’s disease dementia; age-associated hearing loss) impact higher-order cognitive functions (e.g., semantic processing; executive function)
  2. To develop cognitive and social engagement approaches to enhance and maintain brain health in older adults


We are housed in the Speech and Hearing Science building (901 S 6th St, Champaign, IL 61820).


We are currently recruiting undergraduate and graduate research assistants. However, if you are interested in learning more about our lab, please email mudar.lab@gmail.com and you can be added to a list to be contacted for future semesters.
