Working Memory and Aging - Robert Logie (Editor); Robin Morris (Editor)
Call Number: ebook- click to read online
ISBN: 1848721269
Publication Date: 2014-07-01
This book brings together international research leaders who address major questions about how age affects working memory: Why is working memory function much better preserved in some people than others? In all healthy adults, which aspects of working memory are retained in later years and which aspects start declining in early adulthood? Can cognitive training help slow cognitive decline with age? How are changes in brain structures, connectivity and activation patterns related to important changes in working memory function? Impairments of cognition, and particularly of working memory, can be major barriers to independent living.

Misbehaving Science - Aaron Panofsky
Call Number: QH457 .P36 2014
ISBN: 9780226058313
Publication Date: 2014-07-07
Behavior genetics has always been a breeding ground for controversies. From thecriminal chromosome to the gay gene, claims about the influence of genes like these have led to often vitriolic national debates about race, class, and inequality. Misbehaving Science,Aaron Panofsky traces the field of behavior genetics back to its origins in the 1950s, telling the story through close looks at five major controversies. In the process, Panofsky argues that persistent, ungovernable controversy in behavior genetics is due to the broken hierarchies within the field. All authority and scientific norms are questioned, while the absence of unanimously accepted methods and theories leaves a foundationless field, where disorder is ongoing.
