“Highly readable and with broad coverage of key topics, this volume is sure to appeal to seasoned clinicians as well as students. The book contains a helpful introduction to both protective and risk factors for cognitive decline. It supports interpretation of individuals' current cognitive symptom presentations based on an integrative developmental perspective that is sensitive to a range of potential contributing factors. This framework—coupled with clinical assessment guidelines and engaging case studies—brings to life the process of interpreting often complex assessment scenarios. The distillation of empirical research on types of interventions suitable for specific neuropsychological presentations is extremely useful. A valuable resource.”

—Nancy A. Pachana, PhD, FASSA, Codirector, Aging Mind Initiative, University of Queensland, Australia


“Essential reading for neuropsychologists, geriatricians, neurologists, and psychiatrists who provide services for older adults. What makes the book distinctive is its accessible overview of the cognitive aging process that successfully integrates basic and cognitive neuroscience, clinical neuropsychology, and lifespan development approaches. Chapters on intervention are particularly useful, offering practical guidance and tools to improve aspects of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. A strength of the book, overall, is its emphasis on the relative influences of biological, psychological, and social factors in the stunningly complex, often nonlinear trajectory of cognitive aging.”

—Laura A. Rabin, PhD, Department of Psychology, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York
