Current Issues in Memory


Part of the Current Issues in Memory series, this book anthologizes work by international research leaders on questions of how aging affects working memory. These include why working memory is better preserved in some individuals than others; which aspects of working memory are retained intact in healthy aging adults and which aspects start declining in early adulthood; whether cognitive training can slow cognitive decline with age; how changes in brain structure, neuronal connections, and activation patterns are related to changes in working memory function. There are six papers here, some by multiple authors. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
