Investigator: Anthony Ong, PhD – Assistant Professor, Department of  Human Development Cornell University

The project addresses these weaknesses by utilizing a combination of innovative methodological (daily diary) and statistical approaches (multilevel modeling) to determine how the daily experiences of older adults with chronic pain, as well as their physiological reactions to those experiences, are associated with positive adaptation over time.
