Older adults experience cognitive deficits with advancing age that cross multiple functional domains, including attention, short-term and long-term memory. I will discuss his latest research using fMRI and EEG to explore alterations in fundamental neural processes that underlie the diversity of cognitive deficits that occur with normal aging. Specifically, this talk will focus on changes in top-down modulation at the interface between attention and memory.
