Neuroimaging data emphasize that older adults often show greater extent of brain activation than younger adults for similar objective levels of difficulty. A possible interpretation of this finding is that older adults need to recruit neuronal resources at lower loads than younger adults, leaving no resources for higher loads, and thus leading to(More)
Brain aging is characterized by changes in both hemodynamic and neuronal responses, which may be influenced by the cardiorespiratory fitness of the individual. To investigate the relationship between neuronal and hemodynamic changes, we studied the brain activity elicited by visual stimulation (checkerboard reversals at different frequencies) in younger(More)
Age differences in the strategies that individuals spontaneously use to learn new information have been shown to contribute to age differences in episodic memory. We investigated the role of prefrontal structure in observed age effects on self-initiated use of memory strategies. The relationships among age, prefrontal regional gray matter volumes, and(More)
