Hemispheric asymmetry reduction in older adults: the HAROLD model.
The HAROLD model is a cognitive neuroscience model that integrates ideas and findings from psychology and neuroscience of aging that is supported by functional neuroimaging and other evidence in the domains of episodic memory, semantic memory, working memory, perception, and inhibitory control.

Imaging Cognition II: An Empirical Review of 275 PET and fMRI Studies
Analysis of regional activations across cognitive domains suggested that several brain regions, including the cerebellum, are engaged by a variety of cognitive challenges. Expand
Aging Gracefully: Compensatory Brain Activity in High-Performing Older Adults
The results suggest that low- performing older adults recruited a similar network as young adults but used it inefficiently, whereas high-performing older adults counteracted age-related neural decline through a plastic reorganization of neurocognitive networks. Expand
The parietal cortex and episodic memory: an attentional account
The answer to the episodic-memory puzzle requires us to distinguish between the contributions of dorsal and ventral parietal regions and between the influence of top-down and bottom-up attention on memory. Expand
Cognitive neuroscience of emotional memory
Cognitive neuroscientists have begun to elucidate the psychological and neural mechanisms underlying emotional retention advantages in the human brain, revealing new insights into the reactivation of latent emotional associations and the recollection of personal episodes from the remote past.

Que PASA? The posterior-anterior shift in aging.
The present functional magnetic resonance imaging findings demonstrate the validity, function, and generalizability of PASA, as well as its importance for the cognitive neuroscience of aging. Expand
Hemispheric asymmetry reduction in older adults: the HAROLD model.
A model of the effects of aging on brain activity during cognitive performance is introduced. The model is called HAROLD (hemispheric asymmetry reduction in older adults), and it states that, underExpand
Task-independent and task-specific age effects on brain activity during working memory, visual attention and episodic retrieval.
The results indicate that both common and specific factors play an important role in cognitive aging, and suggest that age-related hippocampal deficits may have a global effect in cognition. Expand
Role of parietal regions in episodic memory retrieval: The dual attentional processes hypothesis

  • 1 June 2008
The new dual attentional processes (DAP) hypothesis explains why VPC lesions yield a memory neglect syndrome: a deficit in spontaneously reporting relevant memory details but not in accessing the same details when guided by specific questions. Expand
Present and Future
Traditionally, cognitive aging research has been based on behavioral measures of cognitive performance such as response time and accuracy. Data have indicated that agerelated decline occurs inExpand
