The handbook of aging and cognition( )

42 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 2,994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Major issues in cognitive aging by Timothy A Salthouse( )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years the field of cognitive aging has flourished and expanded into many different disciplines. It is probably, therefore, inevitable that some of the research has become very narrow, primarily focused on "counting and classifying the wrinkles of aged behavior," rather than addressing more broad, general, and important questions. Timothy Salthouse's main goal in this book is to try to identify some of the major phenomena in the field of cognitive aging, and discuss issues relevant to the investigation and interpretation of them. He does not attempt to provide a comprehensive survey of the research literature on aging and cognition because many excellent reviews are available in edited handbooks. His principal aim is rather to stimulate readers to think about the big questions in cognitive aging research, and how they might best be answered."--Jacket
Theoretical perspectives on cognitive aging by Timothy A Salthouse( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phenomenon of age-related cognitive decline has long been controversial, both in terms of mere existence, and with respect to how it is explained. Some researchers have dismissed it as an artifact of declining health or lower levels of education, and others have attributed it to general changes occurring in the external environment. Still other interpretations have been based on the "use it or lose it" principle -- known as the Disuse Hypothesis -- or on the idea that there are qualitative differences in either the structure or the process of cognition across the adult years. Perhaps the most popular approach at present relies on the information-processing perspective and attempts to identify the critical processing component most responsible for age-related differences in cognition

A theory of cognitive aging by Timothy A Salthouse( Book )

12 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a half-century of research has documented the fact that people of different ages perform at different levels on a variety of tests of cognitive functioning, and yet there are still no comprehensive theories to account for these phenomena. A Theory of Cognitive Aging is intended to begin intellectual discussion in this area by identifying major issues of controversy, and proposing a particular theoretical interpretation based on the notion that the rate of processing information slows down with increased age. Although still quite preliminary, the theoretical perspective is demonstrated to provide a plausible account for age-related differences in functioning on measures of memory, spatial ability and reasoning. The book has four aims: - To advocate a more explicitly theoretical approach to research in the area of cognitive aging. - To outline three important dimensions along which it is argued that any theory of cognitive aging phenomena must take a position. - To evaluate empirical evidence relevant to specific positions along those dimensions. - To summarize the major concepts of the current theory, and to describe its application to selected findings in the research literature
Mechanisms of age-cognition relations in adulthood by Timothy A Salthouse( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2018 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is the written version of a series of talks delivered as recent MacEachran Lectures at the University of Alberta. The informal style of the lectures, and the inclusion of a relatively large number of figures, has been preserved in order to keep the monograph faithful to the concept of an individual attempting to integrate his own research into a reasonably coherent framework. Although the volume is very much a personal account of one individual's perspective, the studies reported are naturally a product of many collaborations as well as inspirations from colleagues. The fundamen

Problems with alcohol use are common and often occur with other psychological and social problems as well. Left untreated, alcohol use disorder can have significant impact on a person's functioning, health, and relationships.

The Adult years : continuity and change( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Adult Years: Continuity and Change"--The baby-boom generation is now entering middle age and is only two decades away from the retirement years. The fastest-growing segment of our population consists of those over age 85. We are living longer and there are more of us every year. Is psychology ready to serve an aging and aged population? Is the training available in geropsychology adequate? Do we know enough about not just psychology but also about biology and the social processes with which the older adult is most concerned? The chapters in this volume address these and other questions of importance in psychological practice with the older adult. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
