This lecture will address key topics in cognitive aging, and provide a brief overview of the current state of research in this growing, multidisciplinary field. A summary of the physiological changes in the aging brain will be presented as well as a review of variables that influence cognitive abilities in older age. Dr. Bieliauskas will discuss how normal aging differentially affects various aspects of cognition and specify changes within various domains such as attention, executive functioning, and memory. He will present some of his own studies which investigate the relationship between aging and visual-spatial processing, as well as the impact that aging can have on aspects of occupational functioning and task performance. His talk will also include a brief examination of the various theories that have been proposed to account for the cognitive changes that accompany normal aging.
