Abstract

We have summarized the literature on cognitive changes in normal aging. The concepts of normal aging, age-associated memory impairment, and their possible continuum with dementia are discussed. Epidemiologic, genetic, radiological, as well as neuropsychological and endocrine contributions to the understanding of cognition in the elderly, are reviewed.
