Biological and Neuropsychological Mechanisms: Life-Span Developmental Psychology

By Hayne W. Reese; Michael D. Franzen | Go to book overview

mity may diminish our sense of dignity, severe mental impairment literally strips us of our humanity. Fortunately, although most of us will become senile, that does not necessarily mean that we will become demented. What is abundantly clear, however, is that our exposure to risk factors for diminished cognitive proficiency increases in old age. In fact, age itself may represent just such a risk factor. Other threats to intellectual integrity in later life include physical frailty, systemic and neurologic medical illness, and alterations in the psychological domains of attitude and motivation. Questions regarding which of these can be mitigated represent important public policy issues for our aging society.
