Summary
  • Cognitive Decline - Strategies for Prevention brings together a group of leading researchers in cognitive aging to assess and make practical recommendations about the strategies currently available. The chapters assess how "normal" cognitive aging should be defined and what the genetic, medical, psychological and environmental factors are which can adversely affect optimal cognitive function in late life. It then goes on to examine how "healthy living" strategies can be employed throughout life to prevent cognitive decline in later years and what are the current research strategies which promise new approaches to prevention in the future
  • Cognitive Decline - Strategies for Prevention examines the problems associated with our understanding of the aging brain, whether or not such decline is inevitable and if there are practical steps which can be taken to prevent or minimise cognitive decline in late life. Our knowledge about the prevention of cognitive decline and dementia in old age has grown rapidly in recent years and it is becoming clear that preventive strategies are now viable
