PSYCHOLOGY The Handbook of Aging and Cognition 3rd Edition Edited by Fergus I. M. Craik, University of Toronto and Rotman Research Institute, Canada and Timothy A. Salthouse, University of Virginia, USA ‘The book is well-planned and consistently well-written by some of the most active and highly regarded researchers in the field, and promises to serve as a valuable reference source for many years to come.‘ – Human Development 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 ten years. This new 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 reviews of current work on neuroimaging, neuropsychology, genetics and the concept of brain reserve, through the ‘mainstream‘ topics of attention, memory, knowledge and language, to a consideration of individual differences and of cognitive aging in a lifespan context. This edition continues to feature the broad range of its predecessors, while also providing critical assessments of current theories and findings. Selected Contents: Preface. N.A. Dennis, R.
