Research Interests

Dr. McCarrey's research program examines factors that influence healthy psychological aging and decision-making ability.  She also studies psychological correlates of, and modifiable factors that promote, cognitive health and quality of life in older adulthood.  She uses experimental methodologies, psychophysiology and brain imaging to investigate these scientific research streams.

Dr. McCarrey welcomes hearing from graduate students interested in studying aspects of psychological aging.
