Résumé :

New research has yielded potential breakthroughts in our understanding of how the mind ages. [...] Not only has research shown promise of new ways to promote cognitive functioning in older poeple,it has also revealed the link between biology and culture as determinants of cognitive funcitoning. Past life experiences, present living situations changing motives, cultural expectations, physical health status, and sensory-motor capabilities are all factors in how we adapt to changes in our nervous system as we age - and may affect the brain itself.

On the basis of these findings, this book makes specific recommendations for federal support of major research initiatives in three areas: neural health; cognition in context ; structure of the aging mind.
