Our research is mainly focused on the study of the psychological variables of an aging
population, both optimal and pathological aging, including interest by protective factors against deterioration.
We seek to know the variables that influence aging in general, such as coping styles, life satisfaction, well-being,
quality of life, learning throughout life, and relationship with other social, familiar and cultural factors.
Psychoinformatic and Mathematical Psychology
Our group has experience in the field of the experimental psychology. We also work with mathematical
models and probabilistic approaches. At the same time, we are interested in the development of software and applications,
and new technologies applied to the field of psychology and aging.
We are conducting research in the field of intergenerational relationships and comparisons and
differences between children and the elderly in different psychological areas.
Furthermore, research also focuses on informal caregivers of dependent people, especially in the
biopsychosocial health as actual consequences of the "task of caring", and the design of programs for the prevention and
intervention of possible psychopathologies related.
