Cognitive Neuroscience of Aging: Linking Cognitive and Cerebral Aging

Roberto Cabeza, Lars Nyberg, and Denise C. Park


It has been 10 years since the first edition of “The Handbook of the Cognitive Neuroscience of Aging: was published. The field was in its infancy at that time, and has matured rapidly, as a reading of the present volume will quickly establish. The original chapters often laid out an agenda for directions for future research, and it is quite gratifying to note that the present chapters reflect advances in methodology, basic processes, and health that were called for in the earlier volume. A brief summary of the major contribution to the discipline of each chapter is presented.

Keywords: cognitive aging, cognitive neuroscience, memory, methodology
