Chapter 14 reviews what is known about various aspects of cognition in terms of expected changes over time, including executive function, memory, language, arithmetic and visuospatial skills, insight, judgment, and emotions, along with their anatomical correlates, and then presents the cognitive reserve hypothesis and data on modifiable risk factors of cognitive decline, providing a strategy for dealing with the inevitable cognitive changes that accompany the privilege of aging.
