We are interested in how people learn from stories across the lifespan. Participants will be asked to come into the lab one time and answer general knowledge questions about the world as well as read fictional stories. The task takes place on the computer but does not require any computer expertise. It takes about 2 hours to complete and participants are compensated with $36 for their time and travel.
Participants should be over the age of 65 and not taking any medication that makes them drowsy or otherwise affects their memory.
