Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2015)

There has been a dramatic rise in the worldwide proportion of the population comprised of older adults. This change in demographics suggests a need for increased understanding of how cognition changes across adulthood. This special issue is devoted to research addressing the impact of age on cognitive processes, as well as the effects of health, environment, lifestyle, and genetic factors on cognitive aging. Manuscripts presenting original research on either basic or applied topics (or a combination of these) as related to aging and cognition will be considered. For example, papers presenting studies of age-related changes in perception, working memory, or reading comprehension processes would be appropriate. Papers on research testing the effects of health conditions, exercise or diet modifications, or variables related to social settings on cognitive processing in older adulthood are also encouraged.
