Age related differences in visual episodic memory: An ERP study

Continuing research within the department has looked at the cognitive changes in normal healthy aging with the hope of differentiating such changes from pathological deficits associated with Alzheimer?s disease. I will be discussing my research which will be looking closely at age ? related differences in a visual memory paradigm, identifying ERP components reflecting those processes susceptible to change. This will aim to help provide a more comprehensive understanding of the aging brain as well as conditions such as Alzheimer?s disease.
