Dr. McInerney’s research focuses on intervention and rehabilitation strategies for neurologically compromised individuals along with the understanding and promotion of healthy aging. She is currently engaged in research examining neuropsychological and affective changes associated with frailty in older age and the effect of moderate and high intensity exercise on sedentary individuals. Additionally, she is involved in several studies examining decision making, including identifying markers of competency in healthy cognitive aging. She is working on a screening questionnaire to assess financial and medical capacity in Hispanic and non-Hispanic individuals with mild cognitive impairment and the oldest old. Her prior research focused on the neurocognitive correlates of hazard perception and probabilistic learning in healthy aging older adults.
