Rachel Downey is a third year PhD student studying Clinical Psychology at Concordia University. Her research focuses on how different forms of interventions (i.e., executive function training, aerobic exercise, balance and coordination training) can improve multi-tasking behaviour in older adults. Specifically, she is interested in better understanding methods to improve cognitive-motor dual-task performance (i.e., walking while doing a cognitive task) and how individual characteristics, such as age, hearing capacity, and baseline cognitive and physical functioning affect training efficacy.
