Dr. Lustig’s research program examines how adults control and overcome different forms of interference, and the consequences when they don’t.  Underlying themes in her cognitive aging work emphasize factors that influence task engagement, including how task constraints versus monetary incentives affect age differences in performance, reports of boredom, distraction, and mind-wandering.
