Given the success of the previous edition
of this Research Topic, and the rapidly evolving subject area, we are pleased to announce the 2022 edition that aims to give continuity on the subject and a start of the art on the field.
We are now entering the third decade of the 21st Century, and, especially in the last years, the achievements made by scientists have been exceptional, leading to major advancements in the fast-growing field of Neurocognitive Aging and Behavior.
Frontiers has organized a series of Research Topics to highlight the latest advancements in research across the field of Aging Neuroscience, with articles from the Associate Members of our accomplished Editorial Boards. This editorial initiative of particular relevance, led by Dr. Kristy Nielson, Specialty Chief Editor of the Neurocognitive Aging and Behavior section, together with Drs. Annalena Venneri, Yong Liu, and Shin Murakami, is focused on new insights, novel developments, current challenges, latest discoveries, recent advances, and future perspectives in the field of Neurocognitive Aging and Behavior.
The Research Topic solicits brief, forward-looking contributions from the editorial board members that describe the state of the art, outlining recent developments and major accomplishments that have been achieved and that need to occur to enhance our understanding of brain-cognition and brain-behavior relationships. Authors are encouraged to identify the greatest challenges in the sub-disciplines, and how to address those challenges. Submissions should include a strong emphasis on neural foundations.
The goal of this special edition Research Topic is to shed light on the progress made in the past decade in the Neurocognitive Aging and Behavior field, and on its future challenges to provide a thorough overview of the field. This article collection will inspire, inform and provide direction and guidance to researchers in the field.
In this Research Topic we particularly welcome contributions that address:
- Neuroimaging (e.g., MRI, fMRI, EEG, ERP, etc.) studies of cognitive issues in aging, dementia and risk for dementia
- Risks for or indices of neurocognitive decline in aging or dementia
- Interventions, moderators, mediators, or biomarkers of neurocognitive decline in aging or dementia
