Neurocognitive changes in associative- and working memory with aging
Feeney, Joanne
THESIS 9474 This thesis sought to determine the nature of associative- and working memory dechne during adulthood, and to try and elucidate some of the factors which contribute to this age- related mnemonic decline. In the first study we examined associative- and working memory decline in group of healthy individuals aged 18-64 years. We found that significant impairments in both associative memory and working memory function emerged in the 5th decade of life. Controlling for IQ and education, there remained a significant age-related deficit.
