Although many cognitive functions are affected by age, some are relatively maintained. There also are numerous age-related changes in brain structure, but not much is known about how these changes impact upon the alterations seen in cognition. In order to understand the basis for the reductions and sparings of cognitive function in the aged, experiments were carried out to compare regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and performance in young and old subjects on visual perceptual and memory tasks… CONTINUE READING
