Structure–function correlates of episodic memory in aging
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Psychology.
2008 (English)In: Handbook of Episodic Memory, 18, Elsevier , 2008Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Normal aging is accompanied by a wide variety of disturbances in the structure and function of the human brain. It is now well established that normal aging is associated with a progressive decline of episodic-memory function, especially in cued and free recall tasks. Although the primary causes of this decline remain elusive, neuroimaging research have presented an avenue for understanding age-related episodic-memory failure. By integrating behavioral measures and imaging data, the relationship between biological markers of aging and cognitive functions can be explored. In this chapter, we review current knowledge about the effects of normal aging, and its neural correlates as revealed by functional and structural neuroimaging. The importance of reliable cognitive measures in aging research, such as longitudinal behavioral assessment, is also highlighted. We also present results that attempt at characterizing cognitive aging at multiple levels by integrating structural, neuroimaging, and episodicmemory measures.
