Abstract.

If we have the good fortune, we will all age and experience age-related changes in our mental function. Yet, stereotypes for the aging brain are pervasive and generally paint a bleak picture of decline. I will review the current scientific understanding of the aging mind and the steps that are being taken by aging researchers to better understand how we can ward off age-related declines in mental function and maintain our mental capacities as we age.
