How we think, learn, and remember is critical to our performance in every aspect of our lives. Most intelligence tests taken by older people show a classic aging pattern of scores: lower functioning on performance of tests of skills such as perceptual speed but stable scores on verbal scales. Cognitive capability varies widely, even within an individual on different tests – decline is not inevitable. The classic aging pattern suggests that our ability to recall stored verbal information and to use abstract reasoning tends to remain constant. Self-esteem as we age appears to be a defining factor in one’s ability to redefine one’s self-concept as prior roles change and are lost. Elders who remain physically, cognitively, and socially active, despite facing adversity, are characterized by resilience and their ability to draw upon internal and external strengths. Dementia, due to both reversible and irreversible conditions, results in major impairments of cognitive function, especially recall of recent events, comprehension, learning, attention and orientation to time, place and person Module 4 Objectives: At the end of this module, the student will be able to: 1. Describe cognitive functioning in older adulthood 2. Discuss common age-associated changes in intelligence, learning and memory 3.
