Product description


'This is, to my knowledge, the first student-focused distillation of the complex literature on cognitive and social neuroscience of aging. Unlike the typical multi-author book targeting professionals and graduate students, this textbook is truly focused on the needs of undergraduate students and the lay audience. In addition to clear and engaging descriptions of fundamental theories and data, the book provides basic summaries of relevant neuroscience and methodology topics, making it approachable by readers without a background on these domains. For this reason, this is also an ideal book for professional from related fields, who are curious about the exciting new discipline of cognitive and social neuroscience of aging.' Roberto Cabeza, Duke University, North Carolina

'Dr Gutchess describes mechanisms of social, affective, and cognitive change with clarity, defining key terms and explicating research methods. This is an accessible introduction for those new to the field and, with its breadth of coverage and integration of recent advances, a valuable reference for those working in the field.' Elizabeth Kensinger, Boston College, Massachusetts

'Gutchess masters the textbook challenge of balancing breadth and depth in this accessible, comprehensive, yet succinct, new volume. The reader is immersed in the excitement of human neuroscience approaches to aging that combine behavioral experiments and neural measures to understand what happens in the aging mind and brain. The text will delight instructors to teach and students to learn about the neuroscience of aging, and will be a tremendous asset to the field.' Patricia A. Reuter-Lorenz, University of Michigan

Product Description

Cognitive and Social Neuroscience of Aging is an introduction to how aging affects the brain, intended for audiences with some knowledge of psychology, aging, or neuroscience. The book includes figures illustrating brain regions so that extensive familiarity with neuroanatomy is not a pre-requisite. The depth of coverage also makes this book appropriate for those with considerable knowledge about aging. This book adopts an integrative perspective, including topics such as memory, cognition, cognitive training, emotion, and social processes. Topics include consideration of individual differences and the impact of disorders (e.g. Alzheimer's disease) on brain function with age. Although many declines occur with age, cognitive neuroscience research reveals plasticity and adaptation in the brain as a function of normal aging. This book is written with this perspective in mind, emphasizing the ways in which neuroscience methods have enriched and changed thinking about aging.
