The Park Aging Mind Laboratory at The University of Texas at Dallas is a part of the Center for Vital Longevity. The lab is dedicated to unlocking the secrets of the aging mind and the maintenance of cognitive health. Led by director Dr. Denise C. Park, lab scientists use advanced brain-imaging technology and research techniques in cognitive science with the aim of understanding, maintaining and improving the vitality of the aging mind. The evidence-based results from such studies ultimately could lead to new interventions to maintain mental vitality in an aging populace.
If you are interested joining the Park Lab as a doctoral graduate student, please apply to the Cognition and Neuroscience School Program in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences.
