Cognitive Development and the Ageing Process : Selected Works of Patrick Rabbitt (Hardcover)
about this item
Professor Patrick Rabbitt has been a prominent contributor to our ongoing knowledge of cognitive performance and cognitive ageing for over half a century. From the development of information processing theories in the 1960s to a new understanding of decision making and the ageing process in subsequent decades, Rabbitt has been at the forefront of geronotological research.
This unique collection of his research articles represents a timely opportunity to understand how our knowledge of cognitive performance and cognitive ageing has progressed in the past 50 years. Whilst the nature of scientific research means that some of the questions posed have since been answered, Rabbitt adds introductory sections to each article which contextualise its place in the development of the subject area, providing a valuable new angle on the evolution of the field.
This is an important book because it provides a holistic perspective on the development of cognitive research and the ageing process through one of the most active researchers in the field. It will fascinate all students and researchers interested in cognitive development and gerontology.
