The Healthy Minds Volunteers help research labs at the University of Southern California. These labs are working towards a greater understanding of how aging can affect physical, mental and emotional health. The goal is to learn how we can maintain healthy minds and bodies across our lifespan.
The environment at USC is an outstanding one for researchers with interests in cognitive neuroscience, emotion, decision making and aging. The USC Davis School of Gerontology is the oldest and largest school of gerontology in the world and has long been a leader in the field, with its multidisciplinary faculty doing research in neuroscience, molecular biology, psychology, sociology, demography and public policy. The Psychology Department and the Neuroscience Program have outstanding faculty in cognitive and affective neuroscience. There are also faculty members and other researchers with related interests in other schools and departments across campus, such as at the law, business and medical schools.
