Chapter 9 provides a brief review of the leading behavioral theories of cognitive aging and how these have informed clinical understanding of non-pathological, age-related cognitive change, and then examines brain-based theories emerging from cognitive neuroscience studies of aging, their key assumptions, strengths and weaknesses, and utility in mapping the neural correlates of cognitive decline in non-pathological aging. It also reviews ongoing work in the authors’ laboratory to establish reliable markers that can aid in the assessment of age-related cognitive decline and identify brain-based targets for remediative interventions.
