Aging and Decision Making: Empirical and Applied Perspectives by Thomas M. Hess

Aging and Decision Making: Empirical and Applied Perspectives reviews theoretical, empirical, and applied perspectives relevant to understanding the impact of aging on decision making. It summarizes what we know, integrates findings across multiple perspectives, and sets a targeted agenda for future research, all in an effort to meet the needs of practitioners, researchers, and students interested in this important topic. 

The text explores the topic of aging and decision making by reviewing both basic and applied research conducted using a variety of state-of-the-art methods. With a primary focus on behavioral and behavioral neuroscience perspectives, it focuses on decision processes at the level of the individual.

  • Divided into four dominant approaches that characterize the current state of decision-making science and aging neuroscience
  • Explores the impact of aging on the linkages between cortical structures/functions and the behavioral indices of decision-making
  • Examines the themes associated with behavioral approaches that attempt integrations of methods, models, and theories of general decision-making with those derived from the study of aging
  • Details the changes in underlying competencies in later life and the two prevailing themes that have emerged-one, the general individual differences perspective, and two, a more clinical focus
