Overview

This book aims to reverse the bias shown in research literature concerning the decline of information processing abilities with age. Twenty chapters identify areas of limited or no decline in cognitive functioning with respect to rate of information processing, attentional capacity, object perception, word perception, language comprehension, learning, memory, and problem-solving. These findings attest to the imbalance of previous published research, presenting a fairer portrayal of the aged mind.

Key Features
• Investigates a broad variety of information-processing tasks and capabilities
• Shows that aging adults can look forward to minimum dysfunction over a wide range of intellectual activity
• Reverses the bias toward portrayal of the aged, dysfunctional mind
• Provides information applicable toward interacting with the aged in counseling and care-giving settings

Audience: Students and researchers in cognitive sciences and psychology as well as in gerontology, neuropsychology, social psychology, experimental psychology, counseling, education, psycholinguistics, and neurosciences.
