Description

Learning Objectives
  • Identify the practical and methodological limitations of classic cross-sectional approaches to the study of adult development.   
  • Describe recent empirical applications of more advanced longitudinal designs that help to disentangle aging-specific processes from other sociocultural, historical, and measurement-related factors.
  • Explain the reciprocal and dynamic interplay between cognition and other psychological, affective, and social variables and how these relationships change as we age.
  • Describe the extent to which the cognitive profiles of older adults are shaped by environmental and lifestyle influences.
  • Specify future directions for research on cognitive aging how current findings can be applied to improve the cognitive function of older adults.
