Advanced aging is associated with slower and less flexible performance on demanding cognitive tasks. Here we used rapid event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging to explore differences between young (n = 65) and older adults (n = 75) during memory retrieval. Methods were optimized to afford exploration of both amplitude and timing differences in neural activity. Although many correlates of retrieval were similar between the groups, including medial and lateral parietal responses to… CONTINUE READING
