WSU Aging Lab Seeking Participants 50+ in Spokane, Pullman, Moscow and Lewiston

September 7, 2023 - October 31, 2023


Researchers in the Department of Psychology and School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University are examining how to use sensor data to create a complete picture of a person’s everyday routine behavior and activities to support more proactive and in the moment interventions. The sensors are placed around the home and track movement and temperature. They are unable to identify sound, take visuals, or identify other personal information. The preference is to have the sensors throughout the home, however, it is possible for the participant to request certain places not to have the motion sensors. While the sensors remain in place over the course of the 16 months, members of the lab only interact with the participant every four months. We believe this program will have important implications for providing future older individuals coping with memory difficulties effective tools to help with maintaining their independence and quality of life. We are seeking adults age 50+ who are fluent in English. Participants will receive payment and two brief neuropsychological report (one at the beginning of the 16 months and one at the end). For more information contact (509) 335-4033.
