Language in Healthy Aging and the Dementias
In the four lectures of this workshop I would focus on lexical retrieval and sentence comprehension as they decline in advancing age in healthy individuals and as they contribute to the communication problems seen in the dementias. Theories and methods of study -from behavioral to brain imaging- that have been employed will be considered, with discussion of their advantages and disadvantages in understanding the cognitive and neurological underpinnings of language.
