Elizabeth Stine-Morrow and her Adult Learning Lab investigate the differences between younger and older readers using eye-tracking technology.
As we get older, our ability to keep things in our short-term memory as we read generally gets worse. Using eye-tracking lets researchers see exactly what parts of text give older readers problems and allows them to develop strategies that can help people continue to be effective readers later in life.
Stine Morrow is a Professor of Educational Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is also a member of the Human Perception and Performance group at the Beckman Institute.
