About this Research Topic
Contributions to this topic are encouraged from different research methodologies (including neuroscientific, psychophysical, behavioural, and applied) and across all perceptual modalities. Contributions might address the following questions (but are not limited to these): How do changes in sensory tuning influence cognitive change, and to what extent does cognitive function offset perceptual impairment? How can theories of ageing incorporate perceptual decline? Can cognitive training ameliorate the effect of age-related perceptual deficits, and conversely, can improved perception or stimuli reduce the effects of cognitive decline? Does age change the way signals are separated from noise? Does cognitive change interact with all senses in the same way? Submissions that address both cognitive and perceptual factors are particularly encouraged.
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.
