Exercise Improves Mental Fitness As We Age

Erickson attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for his Ph.D. in psychology and worked at the Beckman Institute as a graduate student and postdoc from 2005-2008. He now works as a psychology professor at the University of Pittsburgh and was awarded a Senior Fellowship at the Beckman Institute in 2014.
