As people age, some cognitive functions degrade. This decline can impair decision-making. However, older adults often have accumulated substantial experience that may compensate for these declines and allow them to make better decisions than younger less-experienced decision-makers. Our research aims to illuminate the psychological processes underlying decision making in older-adult and guide efforts to help them maintain or improve their decision-making and thereby improve their work, health, financial security, and quality of life.
