Overview

Cognitive aging is a flourishing area of research. A significant amount of new data, a number of new theoretical notions, and many new research issues have been generated in the past 10 years. This second edition reviews new findings and theories, enables the reader to assess where the field is today, and evaluates its points of growth.

The chapters are organized to run from a consideration of the neural correlates of age-related changes in cognition, through the "mainstream" topics of perception, attention, memory, and language, to more applied areas, and finally to reviews of cognitive changes in the contexts of emotion, motivation, and personality. This edition has a broader scope than the first, progressing from structural changes in the brain to a consideration of changes in the self concept and in social cognition.

For this second edition, the editors invited a completely new set of authors to review topics in the field. The resulting 13 chapters include a review of structural and functional changes in the aging brain; a discussion of the implications of perceptual deterioration for cognitive aging research; a literature review on metacognition in adulthood and old age; an examination of the methodological assumptions in cognitive aging research; an examination of cognitive functioning in very old age; and an overview of studies examining the influences of emotion on cognition.
