Longitudinal Aging Research: Cognition, Behavior and Neuroscience

About this Research Topic

This Research Topic is based on the themes covered in the past 5th International Conference Aging & Cognition 2019 in Zurich (https://eucas.org/ac2019/). This conference series aims to stimulate research in the domain of cognitive aging and related research fields in Europe by bringing together European and non-European scientists. Cognition is defined in the broadest sense, including sensory, cognitive, motor, and emotional aspects, as well as human and animal studies. Whereas cognition and cognitive neuroscience for healthy aging are the main focus of the conference series, an additional focus targets interventions aimed at influencing age-related cognitive deficits. Aiming to bring together the latest developments in the field, we welcome studies by presenters from this successful conference as well as from other colleagues who did not attend but whose work is relevant to this collection.

The goal of this Research Topic is to highlight the latest findings regarding brain and behavioral aging, and how they can deepen our understanding of the mechanisms underlying individual differences in aging. We welcome original research submissions of any study dealing with the process of aging using behavioral assessments (e.g., psychometric testing, self-report, experience sampling), structural brain imaging (e.g., DTI, MRI) and neurophysiological recordings (e.g., resting and task-based functional MRI, MEG, EEG) as well as neuro-stimulation techniques (e.g., TMS, tDCS). We welcome original research reports, critical full-length and mini reviews, meta-analyses, and perspective papers which offer provocative and insightful interpretations of the recent literature and potentially challenging our current understanding of aging.

In order to compile a comprehensive article collection and to avoid overlap between the themes covered in the articles, authors interested in participating should submit an abstract before submitting their manuscript. The Topic Editors will then select a number of authors to submit their full manuscripts. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed.


Keywords: Aging, Longitudinal Aging Research, Cognition, Neuroscience, Behavior


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
