We live in an ageing society. From dementia and depression, to the everyday changes that affect our capacity to make decisions, psychologists are tackling the daily challenges faced by individuals and society as a whole. What types of questions are being investigated by psychologists today? What are the emerging areas that will be explored by researchers tomorrow?

The Psychology of Ageing

- Discusses neuropsychological assessment
- Provides a detailed account of neurodevelopmental disorders
- Considers the role psychological research can play in attempting to address cognitive decline

Providing an authoritative account of how age influences the way we think and behave as we grow older, this is essential reading for all those studying lifespan development, cognitive psychology and health psychology.
