This book describes the changes in the brain and in cognitive functions that occur with aging in the absence of a neurological, psychiatric, or medical disease. It discusses aging-related changes in many brain functions, including memory, language, sensory perception, motor function, creativity, attention, executive functions, emotions and mood. The neural mechanisms that may account for specific aging-related changes in cognition, perception and behavior are explored, as well as the means by which aging-related cognitive decrements can be managed and possibly ameliorated. Consequently, this book will be of value to clinicians, including neurologists, psychiatrists, geriatricians, primary care physicians, psychologists and speech-language pathologists. In addition, researchers and graduate students who want to learn about the aging brain will find this an indispensable guide.

  • Examines the discrimination between brain changes that occur with normal aging and those that occur with neurological and medical disease, which will help clinicians differentiate normal aging from disorders such as dementia
  • Includes discussion of the mechanisms underlying aging-related changes in brain function, providing essential knowledge for clinicians and researchers seeking to understand these changes and trying to mitigate or prevent them
  • Reviews a topic of growing importance, as aging populations rapidly grow throughout the world
