Changes in Memory in Late Adulthood Memory Identify and explain changes in memory in late adulthood.
Provide examples to illustrate the differences between memories functioning at earlier stages with functioning in old age.
Your paper should be 1-2 typed pages and incorporate at least one supplementary scholarly source (peer-reviewed source from an online database or book) to supplement your learning. Be sure to cite in APA format. Younger adults recall more information from episodic memory tasks than do older adults. Because longitudinal studies are rare and often incompatible, the extent of actual late-life memory change is not well established. We assemble two different longitudinal samples of normal older adults, each of which is tested twice at a 3-year interval, using a large battery of episodic memory indicators.
