Aging and Cognition Knowledge Organization and Utilization

by Thomas M. Hess

Part of the Advances in Psychology Series

Aging and Cognition Knowledge Organization and Utilization Synopsis

During the past two decades, there has been a dramatic increase in interest in the study of aging-related changes in cognitive abilities. In this volume researchers from a variety of theoretical perspectives discuss adult age differences in a wide range of cognitive skills. Of special interest is the extent to which aging effects on performance are related to variations in the representation, organization, and utilization of knowledge, broadly defined. Recent research and theory in the field of aging has emphasized the need to examine such processes more closely in order to provide a more complete understanding of aging effects on cognitive behavior.

Aging and Cognition Knowledge Organization and Utilization Press Reviews

...this book should be a welcome addition to the libraries of cognitive aging researchers, especially those interested in knowledge base effects on older adult cognitive functioning. --Contemporary Psychology
